Hello from Ireland

Hi all,

Noel here from Co.kerry in Ireland,
I was researching Ribs last year and came upon this site a good few times, I actually didn't buy an authentic Rib in the end but got a good deal on a used poly rib like boat instead,
hope I'm still welcome

Cheers
Noel

Welcome to RIBnet Noel. You're from good boating country and i suppose the football is just about OK too

Our eponymous moderator Poly has one of those yokes too - I hope they're OK as I've booked a run on it shortly....

Brave man, impressive but violent,
