Love the Lough Neagh Fisheries boat - looking forward to seeing her on the water.

So yes indeed - St. Kilda it is. She is well along and towering above donegaldan who was up to leave Deep Six in for servicing. There were a few other nice hulls taking shape on the main floor, the Lough Neagh Fisheries jet boat is an eyecatcher in grey and the latest Bouncer (12m) is shaping up nicely with twin Yanmar 370s. I'll be back to collect Deep Six in a couple of weeks, so more then. Plz excuse the Ribeye in the last pic - it's OK 'cos it's actually a splash
Lucky St Kilda pilgrims The Grey Lady is looking right on the money

Redbay knew this and yes the other good boat builders should and do offer good service I am sure, but it's nice to feel as though you are a valued customer even though you are not spending any more money with them


In my experience and this is our second rib, some don't care at all, as soon as your Money has cleared and you have left you are on your own.

That was all I meant to say

I think that people who have had good after sales service from there rib/boat builders should do exactly what you have done and give them praise and its a big help for any prospective buyer to make a choice of which company to use The power of RIBnet

I agree with kerny, great forums like these are ideal for recommendations for new ribbers.

ah no, nevva agree wiv kerny, he's go no taste, especially in motors

if only those dealers n manufactures that don't deliver the same service as Redbay read these comments then we'd stand some chance, but till he'll freezes over we've got the power of RIBnet to guide us
