Tell me about it - I DO intend to use it in the winter but it would be nice to be able to use it NOW - really makes me sick at the moment!!!

My mate's wife is expecting a baby - 9 months of waiting and as the time gets closer - now how they feel..........

What d'you mean you know how they feel?! This RIB of yours has had the longest gestation period in history. Just hope your girlfriend doesn't fall pregnant - bloody kid'll be four years old before it pops

What I fail to understand in all this is why, if the requisite funds were not available to buy the RIB earlier, have you seen fit to go out and buy not only a Range Rover, but also an RX8 Particularly when you informed us some time ago that you are in the habit of leasing cars and chopping them in on a 3-4 month cycle!!!

Actually it has been bang on a year!!!

The funds WERE there to buy the RIB - paid for it ages ago. It was all the other bits and bobs I ran out of dosh for due to our company takeover/merger.

Don't you realise the difference between private funds and business expenses???

Haven't had the RX8 yet - think I will have to send the Rangie back(sob) before I take delivery.

Yes I do change cars on a pretty regular basis - unlike my pride and joy 110 - and the Alfa and the old Rangie Classic...........

Snot fair though - lot of catching up to do - mate of mine has just taken delivery of a DB9 and my other mate's F430 is due soon!!!! Bet I will have more fun on the RIB though!!!

So you paid for a RIB in advance before collecting it and this was ages ago?

What a trusting soul you are!

Tell me about it - also I am having the boat at a very good price for what it is - prob half of what it should have cost!!!! That is why I have been so patient with them.

And in fairness not all the problems have been caused by them - many factors to take into account.

Surely though, 12 months is a hell of a long time, the rib would be complete by now, even if you havent had the funds for the "extras" you could take some pictures of the boat itself? or get the manufacturers to, im sure they'd be happy to, especially as its taken so long :|
