I prefer sports boat and Rib as its more varied, more impartial reveiws, I found rib int should be re-named Biased Monthly, The editor with a treble barrelled seems to be on every page!

Yes,

I noticed the bias when watching the rib int. TV reviews. They are all the same. Sounds like they are all advertisers or friends of the reviewer. Put me off buying a boat based on his comments!

I'm a bit biased as I am a contributor - I do the monthly race review and occasional articles - if you've got something worth writing about I'm always open to suggestions!

That excludes you Mollers!

I remember in one edition there was a Ribeye on every other page, nothing to do with their location of course!!

Yeah I rember that one .... I think most of them have some bias here or there, at least they help get the products out in view .. you'll soon know if something is crap by logging on here .. except everything Codprawn buys ofcourse which is allways brilliant ....

I usually get both,you just have to glean the relevant pieces for good info,the sports boat mag is also good for showing how much more you seem to get for your 'hard earned' when buying a hard boat compared with a RIB!....I MIGHT ADD,Matt h may not BUY 'Rib International... BUT he certainly finds time to look at mine when he comes round!
