Basically had my pants down now it's falling to bits."

The one you brought was slatted on the forum and it didn't stop you buying it. People who know, know.

Don't think it's gonna fly off the shelf mind, cant see people queuing up to buy a big RIB after this summer !!

Engines of all brands rarely break down when the boat spends the entire "summer" parked in the driveway keeping 500 gallons of rainwater off the paving as most of them probably have this year
