A good seller or one to avoid.

Hello all,

Having read a couple of threads recently re dodgy e-bayers and those that take your money without sending the goods i was wondering if these people are any good before i order any bits?

http://www.ribsmarineparts.co.uk

I'm only after a website that i can use to get bits such as impellor, and a rubber grommet type item that the remote goes through on the engine. thats a really poor description.....

Failing that anyone know any decent websites that i can put my engine number in to get spare parts as and when i need them.

Thanks, Matt.

Its a good place - the main company ; http://www.ribsmarine.co.uk/ has looked after my opti for the last few years very well indeed. Family owned and are good guys. If you cant find on the website what you need give them a call. Simon knows his stuff inside out.

I agree with the above although ordering from their EPC means you will be paying full RRP for parts, a concept that's quite alien to us Jerseymen

Black Dog Marine who posts on here as "Turbodiesel" is also a dealer for Barrus parts and gives 10% off for Ribnetters as well as providing an excellent service
