Be aware of immitations

Just two things beofree I lave you in peace for a few days

1. I was informed by very relaible sources that Falcon lost their case against their x rep in cape Town who aledgedly produced similar RIBs to the Falcon range. So if you want to buy a cheap cheap RIB to have fun and you decide to get a Falcon be aware what you buy, who has made it and where it came from and have a written guarantee with it. IMHO if you looked at the boats were looking exactly the same. The court however didn't think so.

2. I just found out that some (actually one or may be two) people that advertise powerboat lessons on this forum and promote treir business are not registered with the RYA (and I don't mean Jono or Tim and many others).
However, what I I mean is OTHERS (is like a click of mates if you get my drift).
How to check what is what you just go on to the RYA site and look at the approved schools. There you can see what is what and who is who

Do NOT get taken for a ride. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

Your answer is here http://www.rya.org.uk/Map/Search.asp?rteselect=true

They will NEVER put their hands up Jono. They don't have the guts for that

So why don't you "out" them, if your allegation is true? Save us all the aggro of searching through endless lists....

I think it is very important to point out that like other sites, the RYA have a certain inability to keep things updated - so unless you have checked with the RYA yourself that these schools are not approved I would hold off on potentially slanderous accusations!

Not been on here since March (a tad busy and out of the uk a lot) but I see things are much the same and Manos is still the same old Manos! Come on name names-otherwise all the recognised schools such as myself,jono, etc will have to come on to confirm our status.

How interesting - the powerboat school that Louise and I did courses with isn't listed by doing a search on that page. We received certificates back from the RYA, and the school has been recommended by Paul Glatzel, so I think we were OK with that one. He also does some fairly high profile work with major names in the marine industry so no apparent problem there.

As mentioned above - perhaps the RYA site isn't 100% up to date?

Manos, exactly who are you trying to discredit?
