Rib tv is it possible

We have top gear for cars, Is there anybody out there that knows someone at sky that could commision a new series from powerboat training, testing, buying, servicing, engines etc.
Sound like a good program already as so many people are choosing boating as their hobby/sport.
This is a great Forum for finding out informationabout ribs as a new member I have learnt a lot in the last week but we love to see thing on tv don't we?

TV

I believe powerboating is shown on some of the digital channels already but I don't think there would be the subscription to provide a fulltime boating channel.

One of the Stigs is in the water somewhere - maybe someone could find him

I reckon Sky could have Rib TV - if they had Manchester United TV, then surely they could do a rib tv channel....

No no, not me... it's everyone around me seems to be leaping out their RIBs!

Alex - you were obviously watching what I consider to be one of the finer comedy programmes on telly at the mo. I thought that their choice of "Don't fear the Reaper" (Blue Oyster Cult) whilst reminiscing some of the outgoing Stig's finer moments was classy!

not to mention the complete BMW fest, and my favourite car of all time, the E30 BMW M3. Back to the matter at hand, the only powerboat show i can think of is Motors Boat on Motors TV (sky only, i think). It's ok, but only one new show a month and it tends to feature few RIBs.

Top Gear did actually do a boat show once, but it was awfull. We actually came up with the idea - even spoke to Jeremy Clarksons manager (his wife!), then they nicked the idea and cocked it up - the whole thing lasted one very short series and landed in the bin - ah well!
