I second, what Alan Priddy has said that Soundings magazine are planning a BIG spread on Ribs in the OCT. issue. After completeing the 1999 Round Britain, I contacted several US boating sources and Soundings was the only magazine that showed any interest in a story. Hopefully this issue will ignite a spark in the American boating community, and the recreational buyers will begin to see the inherent strenghts of Ribs. Lets keep our fingers crossed that this article (and hopefully more articles will follow), will foster what many through out Europe already know, Ribbing is a blast.
