Well the foghorn has spoken....that will teach me not to log out when I go to sea! Those of you that know us are probably as surprised as me that Rogue Wife joined in.
Firstly I meant to put a smiley at the end of the comment re the repairs it was meant to be a bit of banter. But I do appreciate that having a pop at someones boat can be personal and I regret being the catalyst for dragging the discussion down to the name calling level. I never actually expected an invite to the Xmas Ribeye Owners Dinner Dance but I guess I've really got no chance now! Maybe the Falcon owners can forgive me in time. however I could really do with a couple of red blobs so please start dishin em out
I have never I aimed to be an expert on anything to do with Ribs...but I have a good deal of experience of Ribs both on and off the water and I ask a lot of questions and never miss an opprtunity to give a Rib the once over. I've also earned a living as a laminator in my youth so I do know a bit about GRP.
To get back to the original point of this thread
This is my view on the Ribeye They look good and they ride well and they have decent lumps but I think they have suspect quality control and the seat fastening system will be a point of failure as a result of this I suspect they won't hold their value well over the years. Bit like an Alfa Romeo re holding the value
Steve how much and what spec are the boats you are interested in.
Bruce both the Soent and the Scorpion handle well in rough conditions. more than a sea state 5 and you shouldn't really be out.
