New website

Our new website has just gone live, what do you think?
It has been done by the same fella that did Thames Rib, which is what attracted me to it.
Now if only the weather for the weekend would improve.

Looking good . The weather will improve I am sure.

One thing for the future maybe? - there is a way to get your name higher on google seaches , not sure how as we had 'man' to sort out.

Looks very good, just one comment / suggestion - it would be good if you could click on the thumbnail images to get a larger image - I'm thinking in particular of the Jurassic Tour map and the three small images on the 'Boats' page.

Cheers

Chris

Maybe it's me but.......

Agree with the other comments, particularly the image resizing, but the one thing that grated with me - "RIB speed boat" !!!! I know that it has to appeal to all sorts, but for me,

Ian

Could not agree more, but apparently by describing in that way, your average punter will know what it is and google can associate and look at the individual words, RIB, speedboat ....

Nice site but due to flash content most of it doesn't work on an iPhone. That knocks you out of the Market for those who are out on a weekend, nice day, fancy a ride and go on the net to source an operator. I'd hazard a guess that whilst iPhone only have 16.1% of the smartphone Market in uk (as at may 2010) those with enough money to afford a ride and live down south will much more likely have an iPhone as they are expensive. Therefore you may lose 20-40% of customers out and about on a nice day who google "rib ride" etc on their phone.

Just a thought and possibly completely unfounded!! Worth considering though if easily changed.
