As mentioned Codprawn set up a new business and has thrown his entire life at it to get it going and make some money. Last time I spoke to him he was well, but that was probably 18 months ago now.

Hugh Jardon had some big changes in his life, and moved on to things other than RIBs.

As mentioned Knot Yet did have some health problems, but I don't think her and her family ever really got on with RIBs, and again they moved on to other things. I spoke to her this time last year, and she was well.

The Jackeens are enjoying life in France and have also gone all 'Rag and Stick'. Last time we spoke they were well.

Willk - No idea

There are of course lots of other prolific posters that have come and gone over the years, mostly because they have moved on to other things through choice or out of necessity.

Of course I understand why that is, but when you have a community orientated forum, which Ive always felt this one is, (I suppose most forums are) Ive always wondered why people move on so decisively ? I mean Codprawn still needs to talk to people, so why doesent he do it here anymore ? .. why chop off a method of communication so decisively, when it was one you used a lot ?

Are they afraid they have become addicted to the internet or something ? and I know for some people that is a problem, but surely keeping abreast of kit, tactics, or trouble shooting is more valuable than signing out 100% ? Unless he sold his boat ? but even then, I do a lot less than I used to, but I still like to keep an eye out

I kinda miss Mollers, especially the old Mollers with his mildly confrontational posting style Often entertaining!

I spoke to Codprawn a few months back when he shifted a 250 Etec for me, he did a spanking job on that, it turned up two days after pick up as he said it would.
He still has his Pro-Sport 8.5 and is looking to Re-engine it soon.

I wonder if Manos still has his mighty Falcon?!
