OK - in the interest of openess my concern was around the seating in the Cobra used - which I have no problem with if used in the way they were intended etc etc ( I like Cobras - I think they are well built , solid & safe boats ) . I'd add my posts about kill cords were a joke due to the amount of kill cord posts going on - and that even my youngest is quite confident on a boat. I have no doubt at all about them being used in the charter industry - just in case that wasn't clear
A google of 'Charlie Hutton' - will explain all .
However I've swapped messages with Jonathan who was very reassuring about how things were conducted etc etc.
In summary I had a concern I felt was real & justified - however Jonathan has been in touch - all is good
. He clearly runs a well established and responsible operation as does Kevin from Gunwharf . It was not a charter from Gunwharf - more of a pickup.
Case closed as far as I'm concerned - happy to buy a pint for Kevin / Jonathan - infact everyone on Ribnet should I ever get the chance to meet them - apart from 'that Timw' who I have PM'ed and asked to respond..... a true ribnobber ?
