I agree with Jimbo, you must be certain of this before it goes too far.

If you are correct, I would imagine that finding work fitting toobs to rib builders bare hulls could become quite a struggle in the future!

what do you mean? did they buy a hull to complete themselves?

I supplied a hull for them to complete themselves, they used to tube my boats for me then we fell out over a seperate issue, the consoles have not been copied

As I said...."If you are correct, I would imagine that finding work fitting toobs to rib builders bare hulls could become quite a struggle in the future!"

I'm sure most builders would want to protect their products security.

I believe Mike Ring takes a very pragmatic approach, might be worth asking him how he has previously dealt with splashers.

I think the knowledge of Mikes attitude to thieves is enough alone to prevent the situation arising in the first place.

The thing is, the internet 'could' prevent this type of thing happening in the future, it's becoming harder and harder to keep this type of thing a secret thanks to websites like this!

Hopefully, the time will come when the industry is transparent enough through the tinterweb, that there won't be a market for the counterfeiters cheap substandard products.

Iam certain, whilst iam sure there will a very feeble excuse, ive touched the hull mould tool at Olmecs place in Dartmouth.

Ive waited along time to gather enough evidence

John Fuller(If you are correct would imagine that finding work fitting toobs to rib builders bare hulls could become quite a sruggle in the future )I believe Olmec has trouble fitting tubes correctly anyway.A company called Coast Line has just had a set of tubes removed that he did.

Is there any 'baggage' in this deal that isn't obvious?

twood be better to be public knowledge if there were.
