You Have Been Warned.

Had a brill day out ribbing with my freinds yesturday,on the N.west coast, until - on the way home we thought it would be a good idea to warm up in a pub with a quick sniffter, (as you do)!!
After approx 20mins we returned to the pub car park to find the rib slashed, yep some git actually took it apon them selves to pull out their stanley knife & slash the toobs.not a little slash, but four big ones about a foot long. what sort of person would do something like that?

BE WARNED EVERY ONE if you gonna leave yer rib it ISN'T SAFE.
According to the local bobby that attended, he said this is becoming a bit of a habit, he can remember 3-4 similar cases, last summer.

b*st*rds

Hope the insurance sorts it out for you.

Would probably be useful to give details of the harbour/slip/beach etc where the dammage occurred. Geoff(?) at Boatlaunch is also keen to get details of places where such experiences occur so he can warn other users.

Good luck getting it sorted and hope the local bobby catches the buggers.

I'm really sorry to hear that this has happened. I hope things get sorted for you. There are some people out there who need to be strung up by their balls.

Another coward who damages other people thing because of there own inadequieces what type of prat carries a knife let alone uses it like this.
I for one hope they die a long lingering death. But no doubt if they are found and even convicted they will get the normal 100 hours comuel service and a good telling off.

What a bastard. No CCTV on the area that you can ID them from?

This has always been a worry of mine with a RIB - if leaving for any length of time maybe it is worth leaving the tubes all deflated and saggy looking - scruffier it looks less likely they are to damage it!!!

If you were able to ID them, what could you do other than kick the crap out of the cardboard box that they probably live in and kick their scabby dog up the arse!

Of course in this day and age the law will protect THEM more than it will the victim....

Never mind - Tony is tough on crime - he will sort it out!!!

Mates father just had his digi camera nicked from his pocket on Cardiff railway station - he was only using the train cos his car's been nicked!!! Apparently there are gangs of East European pickpockets in the UK now - makes me wonder why the hell Tony allows all these people here???

Another mate of mine is emigrating to Australia - he is going through hell trying to get through the process and yet we let everyone in!!!
