Whatever happened to...

Whatever happened to Crazyhorse and his 'Eurocomuter' RIB?

I live there and I've not seen him for ages, nor have I seen a big cabin rib creaming down the estuary!!!!! Not had time to go to the yacht club for months-I'll have to go and see if he's about, and have a pint or three.
How are things with you north of the border Keith?

Sorry Keith, the reason for the laughter is that there was, and still is, a huge amount of scepticism about the existence of the eurocommuter.

As far as I'm concerned, I have absolutely no idea whether the episode was real or just a fairy story.

I speak to CH on a not so regular basis and hv seen pictures of the rib and believe me it is not a fairy story. A lot of people drop out of the forum , some come back others don't. Perhaps CH will come back one day and show off the Eurocommuter

Cool.

I, for one, would like to see him back on Ribnet. I'm sure there are others who feel the same.

Where are you Crazy Horse? I tried the link to eurocommuter.com and no luck.

Has anyone got any pictures?
