Speak as you find

At the risk of hacking of three of the people I most respect on this Forum, and as one of the main protagonists in the RI stinks thread I have to say that I think this month's copy of RI is better than the recent issues.

Interestingly enough I think three of the articles were written by Ribnet Members and they were vaguley advertorials but in a most acceptable manner.

Dave Mallet did an article on how to make launching fun, (you get someone else to do it). Also Keith (I'm Hugo's new mate) Hart managed to plug his Orkney trip, good 4 you buddy. I'll give it three months before the magazine gets called Sib and Rib international

Somebody did an article on RCD's ..guess who. By the way am I correct in thinking that RCD stands for Recreational Craft Directives or is it Residual Current Device

Sea fariSkye did an interesting article on his business and lifestyle..looks good to me

Also there was a very respectful and empathatic review of Clive Tummy's sorry Tully book "Confronting Poseidon"

I couldn't see a 4 X 4 review

On the practical side Paul Lemmer told you how to buy a secondhand boat and there was an article on rewiring a boat

I think it still has a way to go.

I would be good if an article similar to the Launching article appeared in our features section.

All in all I thik it is on the long road to improvement. Lets keep the pressure up

Stuart

Funny you should say that. It was originally called "RIB and Small Boat Magazine"

Full circle?

Rib Int.

I'd agree with Stuart that it did seem to show some improvement in the directions that were highlighted in the debate on Ribnet, although there is still some way to go.

Pete Fowlers article on Seafariskye looked good but the main photo was labelled a Ribcraft Ocean Pro. I thought the Ocean pro was made by Humber.

It was nice to see CH in print but I don't think Hugo should have edited it. I couldn't get used to the fact that all the spellings were correct

All it needs now is an article by JF who reminds me of my favourite footballer, Dennis Wise, who could start a fight in an empty room. Come on JF, grit yer teeth and write for Hugo. We promise not to tell your OCR mates.

Hi guys,

I have often heard people talk about this mag, where can you get it from? I have tried the normal outlets but cannot find it anywhere. Wave Humper if you have read yours any chance of a read please.

Regards

Where's mine!

Ooooh

I envy you lot with your Rib Ints

Mine must still be weighing a carrier pigeon down somewhere between Devon and Mona's Isle.

Usually I get mine before you guys as well!

Come on Hugo's team, use owls instead of pigeons!

Just bought

my copy from Aladins Cave ( The Moodys boatyard side shop ) near the Bursledon bridge on the Hamble.

Cheaper to subscribe by the looks of it which is what I will probably do, it is surprising that people who subscribe dont get it before it is on sale in the shops ?

HMS (RibInt) suffered from terrible distribution problems about a year ago. Same thing seems to be happening again. I have written to him and will post the reply as soon as it's received.
ps. I do not have mine either and its in the shops already!

Rib International

Picked up a copy yesterday and at the same time picked up the freeby newspaper " All at Sea "

Have to say the " All at Sea " newspaper although not to do with ribs particularly, has a pile more content and a far better read

Why is R I so obsessed about testing boats that Joe Average will never afford ? The mag seems to assume we are all wanting to spend up to 50 K on a rib !!! Think not. Needs more tests on 5 to 6 metre boats ( secondhand ones as well ) which is what the majority of people own or want to purchase.


Anyway what do I know

Reply from HMS:
Rib International have appointed new carriers and by the next issue there should not be any delivery problems. We'll wait and see!
