If anyone wants a chance of a cheap Aerotec 420 this one starts at 250! Guy is declaring a few bits needing a tidy up/repair.

This has been around for a few weeks (B&O, Gumtree and now Ebay), does anyone know anything about it ?

Ive got no knowledge, but it does seem cheap for what it is.

Hmm that's weird... a knockoff Frib from the look of it.

Looks like the sort of thing you could get in a batch from Alibaba. The brand on the data plate doesn't come up on a web search.

But "FRIB"s are just like other Chinese SIB's aren't they, ie a generic design made in a Chinese manufacturing plant and then badged in the West (Seago, Excel, Waveline etc)? ie anyone on here could go to a Chinese agent, order 50 - 100 and badge/plate them how they like?

Is the design an exact clone of the boat marketed as the FRIB?

Presuming maybe that these guys that the matrix url redirects to had a former business importing them or got one to test the market?? Boat is noted as "ex-show boat".

I thought the Frib was Russian... a re-badged Winboat??? Not totally sure though.

No that orange thing is not an exact clone just similar concept. Cone ends look weird.

Too right, did not want to mention that for fear of offending 'bulbous cone owners' but boy, all cones should be pointy pointy. Anything else looks truly horrible.

Actually I'm fine with flat cone ends on modern SIBs... it was more the construction and/or the lack of outer cap that looks odd.

My F-rib was made in Russia.

If you type in matrixribs.co.uk it goes to the zegomarine website, who have premises in Penarth. Might be worth a look for someone who wants a something similar to an F-rib 330.
