Everyone appears to really enjoy looking at photographs of other peoples Rib's and it can be a great source to see what certain layouts or colour selections look like.
The thread 'Lets see your rig' for example is now 49 pages long and there are many other threads showing pictures of individual boats.
Now this may be a bit on the difficult side to set up but how about a section where you can look at certain makes/types of boats in alphabetical order.
In other words if you looked up the letter 'R' you would have all the manufacturers starting with 'R' i.e. Revenger, Ribcraft, Ribquest.
By then say clicking on Ribcraft you would have all the pictures posted of this individual make.
You could then sub divide it by an individual manufacturers sizes or type of boat.
An example of this is click on 'A' then click on 'Avon' then you have the choice of '4m Searider', '5m Searider', 'Seasport' etc etc.
Members of Ribnet could post there own boats/projects. It would take a little while to populate but could be a great resource of pictures which are easy to find
Sorry if you think its a stupid idea or not practical.
