No chance, Keith. I shall save the, no doubt, only interestin' bit of that rag until the moment i'm laying stark naked on my bed, covered as usual with only with a light dusting of deep red rose petals.

Shame about that, Alan. You think I could have blown my cover then?

I couldn't see a reply to this question of when Ribex is taking place. Can someone let me know, because whilst I agree it looks like the show will be devalued I was thinking about having a look at some new Ribs. Its more of that forward planning i.e. the 5 years of fantasy before you end up buying something half the size !

I read both and rib international,I find both products very imformative.If it wasnt for Rib international and there brilliant edit then a lot of people including me would have a lot less boat for there pound.

Ribex 2003 may be improved on ,but to go against and not support the only objective publication and its show, dedicated totaly to our sport is madness.

I will be there and if I can offer advice on makeing it better for 2004 then I will make the point, withought a Tantrum or Demo.

After such a poor display at Earls Court, I hope that there is something to see and find it mad that there wont be any trade stands.

I won't bother questioning any further, but the first years in Weymouth were best. Though the shore space was limited, I think there was a fair representation of the industry and at the end of the day the access to the sea for trials was great (though the tide does move rather fast when you are trying to reverse on to the pontoon).
