RMH,

It doesn't take a genius to work out the manufacturer - why even I could do it!

I think I saw your boat in Ballycastle last summer, and I have to say it looked very impressive.

Presumably this is the older of the two - have there been any similar problems with the other 11 metre rib?

Allen

AP I am delighted that such a gentleman of your character, standards and qualifications would be so kind as to make such a gracious offer. YES I most certainly would appreciate your involvement with a survey. With your kind permission I will contact the Company involved and present your kind offer to survey on both our behalfs. I will contact you to arrange transport and accomodation at a time to suit yourself. Thanks again AP you are a gentleman and you have certainly made my day. Does this not prove the value and importance of this excellent forum?

11mtr problem

Hello ,
Thank you for your kind interest. As said before, when I am able I will name and shame the Company. I am at present receiving fantastic support and advice which I am putting into place. Yes as all reply's have stated "it is almost like bullying tactics by heavy handed Companies" and yes I do feel I am being bullied! Thanks again, and keep the advise coming.

OK.
iTS TIME FOR THE BUILDER/MANUFACTURER/ COMPANY TO OWN UP. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE , BE HONEST AND COME FORWARD TO ALLOW ALL OF US, to compare. Dont hide and not face your responsibilities. there are always 2 sides to every story, and if true every war was caused by the reaction of people who refused to TALK. What is the real problem here, only you can enlighten us.
Think hard!

i get the feeling this is too personal and too much of a one off case for the company in question to discuss the matter openly. I think they should just settle it between themselves.

redbay rover,
You surely must have misunderstood my previous thread. The Company involved has refused to talk, and stated they can go no further and there can be no meetings.It would be easier if this were a one off case as you presume, however this appears not to be the case as the influx of emails I have received implies.
Question! How would you suggest now, that we settle it between ourselves?

I wonder if there has been any progress on the boats problems - its been a couple of months now. - Is no news good news or just no news ?


How about an update

rhm i wish you the best of luck with your rib problems, ive recently been looking at a one off design rib and your link highlights my fears from following this route. i also feel you were more than justified in posting for advice on this forum and think you have been very diplomatic about it therefore do not deserve critisism.

One thing i must ask, you say, "I continually supplied lists of faults and design problems from day one" i can see how a company should repair all faults under warranty.... but what do you mean by design problems?? i take it you were not aware of these when you bought the boat? could you have not specified resolutions to these design problems before purchasing. by buying the product complete (warts and all) surely you agreed to buy their design faults too (unless they failed to complete on items specified as part of the sales contract). for eg its says watertight engine bay, but its not because of a design fault..

goodluck

Well I'm obviously not a genius because I've got no idea who the manufacturer is. Anyway I would be interested in knowing how the 'case' is going. Did AP examine the RIB? What did he think of it?
