Surely this guy has been knocking out other boats in the 2 year period that he's had yours? Otherwise he'd not make a bean. Does anyone else have experience of him? By the look of the workshop he's hardly "mass production".

Aisle imagine It would certainly be a handy place to do any Altarations or fitting anything to the transcept.

If you are pulling it out at Weymouth one of the tugs I work on is based down their, so if you need a place for an SSS and a hand with the recovery PM and I'll send you a number. They owe me favours so it won't cost you anything

Our experience was a month of eratic quotes, many hours spent trying to contact him by telephone and flights out to guernsey to see the boats and take a sea trial.

When we got there it took 2 hours to find Jason, no one was answering the workshop phone, he wasn't answering his mobile and the address on the website was wrong.
The sea trial wasn't possible and when we sat down to settle the deal the price had changed from the latest quote he'd sent us.
At this point we dropped it and went to a different manufacturer.

If you search for Prosport you'll find a handful of thread about them.

Thanks very much for that Rogue - when I find out what I am doing may take you up on that.
