Isn't that a Shearwater on Leeway Composites homepage?

There's something that looks suspiciously like a Ring on his gallery page too.

Err, I was only talking about the cabin, as it is quite well known on here that the hull is a Ring.

Hi all,

We at leeway composites (leeway ribs) did develope and build the first shearwater consoles. We manufactured them for bembridge outboards for a while. Being busy building our own range we decided it was taking to much of our time and no longer make them.

We have a prototype cabin console and can sell them if you are interested?

Shearwater consoles

Just to clarify we contracted L & N composites - now leeway to build the original plugs and moulds for us in 04 to our design. We also contracted them to build the first few of the smaller cabins for us. The cabin has been up dated twice since then. Mike Ring manufactured the later design for us. We own the moulds and design. We do also supply some of the later slightly larger cabins to other manufactures to fit to their own projects.
We have spent the last 15 months working on a completely new 975 model, the first will be diesel inboard powered which we will launch later in the year.
Jim
