Looking for a smaller RIB...

A good friend is looking for a RIB... something in the 15' - 17' range. (He bought my last RIB, then sold it when he got married... now getting divorced, looking for a new boat!)

He is located in Southern Ontario, and I doubt he'd be willing to go too far to get a boat, but if anyone is familiar with any decent boats in the Great Lakes region, let me know and I'll pass along the information..

CK Motorsports is Great Lakes dealer

You or your buddy should call Keith at CK Motorsports (616) 837-9096. CK Motorsports is a new dealer for Mercury RIBS and has some in stock. These RIBS are really slick ... best in the business. They are located in Michigan.

Best in the business? You may get something of a "debate" from some of the members on this forum regarding that comment.... One post does not an expert make imho...

Mercury RIBS appear to be rebadged Valiant RIBS as made in Portugal. Not bad RIBS but PU tubes rather than Hypalon. Merc Dealer here has had a 7.5m with a 150 Verado on it sitting outside their shop for sale for 12 months now with no takers. 'Course the $65k they are looking for it probably has something to do with that!

Geez; think you can be a little more blatant about promoting your products?

I believe Valiant uses PVC tubes, not PU.
