Do I have to "tie" myself down to being a groupie for one particular RIB, or can it be a general groupie?

Nadia - pehaps you could lay out your partuclars on here and see what happens - information given could be: Length Overall, Beam, Max Speed and Cruising Range.

Perhaps some supplementary information such as number of former keepers and any warranty offered may also be useful?

Hm, could we go back to the original topic of this thread please.
The Spirit send off is the title in case you are being distracted.

Pehaps open a new thread titled RIB groupies.

Only a week?

News for all who are making the trip....you do need a few days here in the City. I guess, if you really can't get a day off work, the week-end will do but see if you can make a few extra days. There will be things to do....Plus lots of water to take your boats out for a spin in case the land life gets too much.

Looking forward to welcoming you all here.

I reckon this topic should be added to at least once a day - so I am putting it back to the top.

So, who is coming to Cardiff?

I hope everyone is getting their boats and posse together and telling everyone they know about it as well.

The more the merrier.

My new RIB is due to be ready at the end of February - which hopefully gives us month for sea trials and a couple of weekend shakedown cruises before Easter - so we'll definately be there

Cool....

Glad to hear it.

We will give you a warm welcome in the hillside. I mean..at the seaside.

Are people looking for accomadation?

I posted a message on this thread offering accomadation for up to 12 people in The Pride of Bristol that we would bring accross to Penath - Berthing for your rib alongside!!

I havn't had any responce - so if there are people looking for somewhere to stay let me know

Much more fun than a Holiday Inn

Cheers

I think that this would be great. I'm sure that at least a dozen people will take you up on the offer on the day!

What's the length and beam of the Pride of Bristol so we can make a provisional arrangement withthe marina?
