Nice photos all! I've mislaid my digital camera, so unfortunately none from me...

It was another top notch Ribnet cruise, great to meet so many new faces, and a few of the usual suspects!

Big thanks to blimp for free T-Shirts, and also big thanks to Tim M for the kind loan of Evolution! (Available for Charter by the way, did we mention that?)

I hope my crew of Laser, Nos4r2 and Nos4r2's missus enjoyed themselves as much as I did!

Can't wait for the next cruise, hopefully sidewinder will be ready to go by then!

Hello chaps,
I tried to get over to cowes yesterday from chichester around 1400ish.
It was quite lumpy and I could only seem to manage about 9 knots, I also had a nervous passenger.
I got a couple of miles out, decided it was going to take too long and gave it up.
I would like to know what kind of speeds you were able to manage.
Thanks, Nick.

PS. going over chichester bar, the depth sounder was reading 1.5 metres at times, which was a unnerving.

Good to catch up with some old faces and to see some new ones too.

Big thanks to Kathleen and Paul for another St Patricks Day well and truly celebrated.

Until the next time

M & A

But the sign at the top of the slip says you cant leave your car or trailer there, so I thought you were supposed to park it at the bottom, and it saved on the parking fees

Thanks K & P for organising another great cruise, it was great to meet new and old faces. And a BIG thank you to everyone who offered to help recover my trailer after I messed up big time and watched it disapear beneath the water at Camber slip , I was very relieved when I got back to find it safe and sound at the top of the slip, the lads from the local boatyard had recovered it when the tide went out.
The trip to and from the Folly was great and gave the boat a good shake down (or shake up).
Ended the day on a high I bought another rib 6.5m osprey sea harrier so I now have a project boat to work on
Thanks again to everyone for there offers of assistance
A very embarrased
Richard

This was our first RibNet outing and was great fun. Thanks to Jackeens for organising it! It was great to see so many boats and to have a look for ideas!

The return to Hamble was under the worst conditions we have experienced yet but we were absolutely amazed at the way our Ribcraft handled the conditions. And all my rewiring seems OK!!

Thanks again for a super day!

Now we can look at going further afield....

Hi all - I'm Nos4r2's other half. I met a few in the Folly, but I'm terrible with names

I just wanted to say a massive thanks to Jimbo for the lift on Evolution - I'm feeling battered but it was ace! (Admittedly rather less battered than if we'd been on Psychosis )

Hopefully next time I might be able to join you on my new Zodiac 11' SIB

Probably more-we didn't have to sit there with a salad while fat gits like me were stuffing our faces with meat

I do wish I'd had a video camera handy when that pratt rammed the fuel pontoon just to shame him though

He didn't care... I mean, if he really doesn't care and he's prepared to wreck the boat, I could always find a good home for it...

As Ben5883 mentioned we met a few of the boats at the entrance to Cowes but didnt venture up river to the pub, instead we went for a blast along past Gurnard then over to the Beaulieu river than back along to Calshot and into the Hamble.

It was slightly lumpy out there and got worse the later in the afternoonit got...but hey, it was sooo much fun although I do have brusied ribs from where they kept hitting the toob! No room for the comfort of jockey seats in Jaws!

I don't mean to be vein but did anyone get any photos of us?

And for those of you mentioning you got a couple of waves over the boat, nothing could have compared to how wet we got! Love it! I lost count of how many waves we went through instead of over!
