There really are some all round good eggs on here who go the extra mile for others or are just pure comedy.

http://www.rib.net/forum/f19/chris-s...lch-55480.html

What with the above thread, I wonder who deserves it:

Chris - quiet on here but yet so helpful
Biffer - time served helper quoted so many times
Willk - did I just write that!

All the above are very worthy contenders I'm sure

But......With a total of £6K+ and still rising surely it's hats off to Whisper !

Well done that man

Maybe we can have runners up as well

I think that Trailer Guy should get a mention, he is always giving free advice on here

Gonna sit on the fence here, (at least til Whisper comes along, calls me a nobber,pushes me off and tells me to get on with my boat!) and say these sound very much like the Ribnet Christmas Dinner trophies.

I know how you feel Nos the constant abuse gets to you after a while I cry myself to sleep most nights. That lanky ginger nobber

However he has done an amazing job with the macmillan charity and deserves a pat on the back

If only he spent as much time practicing his boating skills he would be half decent. (Just been told a great story) Whisper how was your yesterday?

I am not one to tell tales

With Pete telling it this should mean Whisper and PeterM are level pegging again after the rib nobber trouser thread in the bilges.

I think 'El Ginge' is in the running - maybe the prize can a PB1 course for him ?

However I'll admit to having falling victim to 'throwing something out the boat before checking its actually tied on or connected'.....(do we have an Anchor smilie ? )

Oh and I've made his recovery efforts public on youtube.....to be fair it was a cracking crosswind and tide ( but I still did it without making a nobber or myself )
