Flankers Boat on show at LBS

For any noseyparkers or people interested, my actual new boat will be on show at the Glastron stand at the London Boat Show, it is the GS209 cuddy. Feel free to have a look in or at it, but please DO NOT pinch anything off it, it has little as it is! Please don't leave anything in the portaloo either


Mine is a 4.3ltr volvo penta engine, I think they may be advertising it as a basic 3.0ltr, but a quick look under the engine cover will reveal it is my 4.3ltr volvo penta.

The boat is not the prettiest in the world, but will do the job. Any comments would be interesting! and yes I realise it is NOT a Rib

Pete

Just been told my new RIB is not going to the boat show now

Ribcraft say they cant get it on the size/shape stand thay have got.

Just hope this does not delay final delivery in Jan/Feb, time will tell.

Cant wait to get back ribbing I am suffering from withdrawl being RIBless for over 4 months now

All the best Gary

That's a pity from the point of view of view of potential customers like me as well - Last year they only had smaller boats on the stand and I'm particularly keen to look at something like your new boat, Gary.

Hi Pepper

Yes I was am disappointed that its not going.

Upto last week it was planned to go. Mark from Ribcraft tell me that London Boat show has only just confirmed the size and shape of his stand, and a 7.8M will not fit on with the other smaller RIBs, maybe from what you say he should leave the smaller ones and take mine .

There are not that many RIB manufactures usually at London boat show, and if it had gone it would have probably been one of the bigger ones on show.

I think many people go to Southampton and Ribex for the bigger Ribs, rather than London. We have decided now its now going we are not going to bother either with London.

Anyway I hope that it wont delay delivery.
Its due late Jan/early Feb and is being delivered to Milford Haven in Wales.
If you want to have a look or a run out etc drop me a PM and I would only be to happy to let you have a look, give you more details etc.

Regards Gary

Pete (with a Rib)

What is a Boat Show Is it somewhere where there are a lot of boats to be seen e.g. a harbour

Sorry I can't meet you for lunch, I am there on the preview day, when it is even quieter

Pete (without the Rib)
