How about Gavin (Howe on Ribnet). The clue is in the title of the post seven down from this one

Phil Boarer (philb) is crew in Seahound I believe. And Andy Macateer (Techno 40) is entered in his Buzzi Techno 40 (Venturer) but hasn't posted for a while. Graham Firmin (grahamf) is crew in Hot Lemon. And isn't Paul Lemmer a member of RIBnet (in the Arctic Blue with Tom M-S).

And don't forget Cookee and Kitten are involved in the build of Jonny Fuller's Phantom swipewipes.

Just remembered, Cookee is doing a leg in Gordon Compton's boat, My Pleasure (I think it may be Bangor to Oban?). And is RIBnet member John G John Guile (in Gee - not a RIB!)?

Has Jonny Fuller's membership 'expired'?
A RIBnet burgee would really look the part on Warlord II

OK, I've claimed that lot - even though at least a couple of them haven't shown their faces for a year or more, and one of them is permanently unable to post

Any more?

It's bad enough that the contract laminators stuck a Bananashark logo under the deck for a joke!

You're right, I'm doing Bangor - Oban - I hope to jump on a few boats through the canal to get the stories of the trip up as well, then return from the far end and meet everyone at the finish!

Jon Fuller has put up a video diary from one of the guys doing the RB and it gives a real taste of what the event was like, plus you don't need to shell out the 18 or so pounds for the profesional DVD ( which I have by the way ).

You can find it here.

Little to no action from the boat I was in so praying that the official DVD has some footage of the FB40 doing it's stuff.

Cheers

Mark

Based on where "33" is I think that was just before Dover when we were doing 75 knots. They had to slow down in the rough stuff whereas we could carry on at that speed and they never managed to catch up

Thanks for putting that up.

Regards

Mark
