The Falklands

Hi All,

I am a final year medical student from London and of course a RIB fan (4.8m ribcraft kept up in the outer hebrides of scotland) - I'm heading to the Falklands for 7 weeks in just over a months time to join the hospital and was wondering if there are any RibNet locals? It would be great to know someone with a similar passion!

Thanks,

Angus

There you go. Means that mid April (for a few brief hours) there will be three RIBnetters in the Falklands (while donegaldan rotates back to civilisation).

Time for a RIBnet Cruise?

Sacrificial Bennys!

OP, some decent marine grade cable and a soldering kit may make a nice introductory gift.

Haha hopefully there shouldn't be too much 'experimentation' as such! Mainland orders welcome to be placed, likely will have some luggage allowance left over!
