Just finished reading the account of your problems with your boat and Lencraft, sorry to here of the trouble you've had. I think I would have gone down there and probably put a baseball bat across both his knees but that's just me, a little primitive but most likely effective after a swing or two...

Gael Force what planet are you on

Ok So I am irish and perhaps I have a small understanding of what Gaelfoce says.
Actually Gaelforce, I am living in Galway and possibly closer that you think.
Why dear friend do you feel the need to try and use Irish.
All these people you are "reaching out" to are lost. perhaps with the exception of the Jackeens.
So if you have something to say in a forum that tends to be very much in the Queens language, please, you are Irish and you have much to contribute,

I really have not a frigging ideas of what you said. SO if you have something to say, stop messing us all about and tell us in a language we understand..
Or else "dun do bheal" I hope that is correct.

I mightn't put it as stong as Aidan but yeah this forum communicates in English with the option of PMs for private communication rather than 'other' languages. So out of courtesy here's roughly what the post said:

Well there are two sides to every story but yours is fairly special for sure. I also note what Polwart had to say on the subject too.

Since I'm on the post, yes Gaelforce there are indeed two sides and I've only given mine as honestly and as verifiably true as possible. I've also omitted a lot of other potentially negative stuff and tried to stick to the subject of tubes so you only got one side of one subject. Correct me if I'm wrong but conventionally most people only post one side of a story - usually their side. The forum is of course open to anyone and it's apparent that at least most of the serious manufacturers do monitor and/or contribute to this forum.

Everyone on here can make up their own minds what to think of my side, including Polwart, and it's always good to have a 'devil's advocate' in any discussion. In fact we have some world class contrarians on here always ready to pour petrol on any glowing ember of debate which makes for great spectator sport at times!

I've received a lot of support here both on the thread and via PMs and I am very grateful for that. It ultimately led to my boat being sorted properly - thanks Mr. Tilley. What is interesting is that I am substantively not the only Irish customer on here that has received, shall we say, less than stellar service from Lencraft.

Like the use of Irish, there's another cultural factor worthy of comment being somewhat different to the UK environment. Ireland is a very litigious environment compared to the UK and deep pockets can weigh more than being right in our courts. So I appreciate those who posted their experiences both publicly and via PM and particularly understand the reason for PMs. I've put my side 'on paper' and in doing so am willing to defend it as accurate -in any forum - so the next time someone comes here to get tubing recommendations they might be a little better informed.

Better still, maybe I'm not the only 'side' who learned something from this experience.

I sold my Lencraft and bought a Redbay, found Jerry very hard to talk to once I had paid the money, gell coat had new holes every time I put it in the water, consol gell coat also had bubbles. Had a few problems with the Redbay but they fixed them without question, the batery gave up the other day and they sent me a new one.

Yeah, I looked at a couple of used Lencraft too, and, well, look what I bought! As Daibheid said - it is a very litigious environment.....

.... so 'nuff said.

Wow i'd forgotten about this thread.

How are Lencraft doing these days? I would be interested to see their prices vs. other RIB's. I wouldn't be rushing out the door to buy another Lencraft tbh. Fast hulls, but too bloody light

Something like
Well, indeed.There's two sides to everything - literally to every story - but especially to stories. I notice the amount that's written "ag polwart" as well. "ag polwart "is not an irish word. No w in irish. Polwart is the surname of a singer.
