Vote for the best supplier and service

On a positive note lets start a thread where you can post to show where you have had very good/exceptional service as this will help folks locate suppliers who have provided great service.

Marine related = JG Technologies. Spoken to the boss and he seems pretty genuine.

And you get the product you order next day delivery for no extra.

Does what it says on the tin.

Got my vote.

Easyjet, held the plane for 12mins for me last year at Faro airport. As for Ryanair?! Money grabbing, couldn't give a shite bunch of B*******!! I'd rather walk than fly with them!

i have had a lot of dealings with various suppliers recently and they have all been most excellent

Ribcraft for toobs

Ron Hale Marine for engine and boat bits

Marine Fabrications for stainless steel

Protex for special fastners

SBS for boat trailer

Osprey for providing a hull all to my spec

mastertrim for upholstery

seastar steering from hypro marine

to be honest it has renewed my faith in some small companies who are willing to go the extra mile and be very competitive and very friendly and helpful to boot.

a lot of companies that i did not place business with were extremely helpful as well, lots of engine suppliers were very helpful but i chose ron hale for a variety of reasons.

it is nice to know that there are some companies that do want your business, however small

RIBCRAFT

Undisputed champions of the RIB Manufacturing world.

(Well to me they are anyway)

It will be a hell of a boat or a hell of a deal that tempts me away from buying from them again when the time comes.
