Lists? Who needs lists! I shall provide everybody with all the info they need to know:

On the 2nd of October 2005, some ribs will be out in the Solent. The ribs shall be many and various, and possibly even devious. If you see a rib in the solent, and you are a ribber, please go over and start following them, as they may be going to yarmouth. If the rib you end up following doesn't end up in Yarmouth, hey, at least you got on the water!

If it does end up in Yarmouth, go up to the driver and say "Hi, I'm from Ribnet, my name is..." The driver then has 3 options:

1) Look at you like you're a nutter, in which case go off and find the actual ribnet crowd in yarmouth

2) Think "This guy's a nutter" but humour you and buy you a drink, in which case, hey, free drink!

3) Say, "Hi my name is The Jackeens/Pete/Jimbo/Rich/Tim/Carly/Nasher/Olly/Mark/Lurcher/Whoever I've forgotten from Ribnet", in which case, result!

There, that's the day in a nutshell, who needs lists!

Jimbo, what are you like

In reality, rounding up us RIBnetters in the right place and somewhere within three hours of the right time is like herding cats

Bejaysus Slimtim, you don't have to get up 'till ten to one. You've time for a big brekkie and a second snooze!
Final list in its extreme finality and last format of the day to follow...

What a day!

Firstly, can I say it has been a tremendous experience to see so many "forum faces", and how impressed I am at the level of turnout and support from all the ribbers (and a hardboat, you know who you are!). Certainly all from the Uni rib have had a fantastic day.

We've put our boat out in weather that she hasn't seen before, and I'm sure people will agree that some of the chop we encountered was fun in a 4.8m! We're pleased to say the boat handled it well, and gave us many thrills along the way (as all those that saw our frequent trips in the air will attest!)

Thankyou to all offers of rides, and actual rides as well, especially Robin and Nasher, who generously took some of our number on all stages of the trip, to ease space in the rib. All the ribs we saw were absolutely amazing, and made us incredibly jealous! Doing near 50kts on Nashers Ocean coming up to Pompey was absolutely amazing, and the way that hull handled waves was an absolute eye opener. The jaw drapping performance of merlin was a sight to behold, and the pleasant diesel aroma from Old Spice and Ju-Ju made me feel like I was back in the city smog, quite at home! All the other boats present looked amazing on the water (especially pressman, with her bow higher than our a-frame ).

Some of you may have noticed a rather dazed looking chap with us, it was of course Tim M, who has just come to Portsmouth uni! Suffering from a hangover, we decided the best thing for him was to get him drunk again. Hmm, he must be sobering up now, where is he? More drinks!

It was great to meet everyone else, can't remember who I spoke to/said hi to, so I'll say hi to everyone again, and I hope to do it again soon!

Evenin,

Good to see everyone again. Trouble is with these meets is that you never get to catch up with everyone! So sorry to those familiar faces I didn't get to chat to much.

Special thanks to Andy for the backrests...I'm chuffed to bits with them! And to Pete for the cables...although I'm still convinced they won't fit! I will have a closer look tomorrow. Also thanks to Ian for the blast in the revenger down to the needles. It was real nice down there, not much swell but the stacks looked great and good for photos.

See you all again soon I hope!

Tim (still recovering)

Wow. What a day. Good to meet those I met. To those who did not meet me, well avoided. It was great to see that Scary Des isn't, at least during daylight. Codders will be sorry to hear about the tragic loss his hat. Yet another victim of the sea?

The trip log was reading 71 nm by the time we got back to Northney. At this rate I will be Gordon Browns best mate. In fact we could have been in Cherbourg now. One day I will forget to turn right.
Thanks to the Uni rib for the company back to Langstone. Are you sure you knew you had passed the entrance?

Much thanks to Mum and Paul for all things done.

K. I finished my coffee as we went into Chi. harbour. It was a bit cold, but I am pleased to report that the new cup holders work well.
