If you use http://www.ribmagazine.com/show.htm instead it will take you straight to the RIBEX page (save wading through the rest of the site ) but there's not much there!

Southampton Council's site has a bit more information at www.southampton.gov.uk/ribex

Cheers
John

I managed to get down to RIBEX today (Friday) and had a good time looking around and taking photos -- I'll post a page of them when I get a chance.

A few things to look out for if you are going over the weekend:

Zodiac's boat with suspension seats and handlebar steering

The new SportRib race boat

Cabin RIBs from Ribtec, Delta and Scorpion

The new Mercruiser 1.7l 120hp diesel engine

Demonstrations of a 100 person liferaft (more like an inflatable ballroom!)

The RNLI self righting demo

Have a good weekend!

John

(Zodiac's Open Pro 650 features a console with a neatly recessed side mount throttle control box. An interesting alternative to using top mount controls.)
John, the Hysucat has had this concept since inception!

Must say I didn't notice! I thought they had top mount controls? I'm sure the twin engine installations do . . .

Quite correct ... the 6.5m twin Hysucat set-up comes with the recessed controls, very neat and tidy !

I wrote a very short report from RIBEX, accompanied by a few pictures. If you are interested take a look at: http://home.swipnet.se/rib-world/logbook/2001.html


I also uploaded some more pictures here (no description): http://hem.bredband.se/sansej/ribex_2001/FrameSet.htm


I still have some 50 pictures to scan, I'll let you know when they are online.
