AFAIK Lee Fairweather at Fairweather Marine comes well recommended http://www.fairweathermarine.co.uk

Haven't used him myself, but he seems to have a v. good reputation.

Lee Fairweather at Fareham, had my engine serviced a couple of weeks ago and was very pleased with the results and seem to be a friendly bunch.

Ditto. Excellent service from Keith and his new premises at Northeney Marina should prove worthwhile once he gets up and running after his recent move from Sparkes.

Nice boat.
If it was week before last, next to his temporary portacabin at Northeney, then yes it may have been. She is nice, it was a lucky buy on Ebay, as Lurcher keeps reminding me from time to time, as it was he who sent me the link to the ad in the first place!

For a first RIB I have not been disappointed. Most notable thing is how little water ships inboard. I took her Penzance to Scilly last summer, F5 with what I felt was a reasonable sea running, however all the kit stowed inboard for a 3 week stay was bone dry. I had been assured by 2 other departing ribs on the same morning that I could expect to arrive there pretty wet.

Should be out Chichester/Pompey/Solent this weekend if anyones around and wants to say hello!
