Most builders strive to continue to improve there product, it does take several boats to get an understanding, once this has been established minor changes in detail are always going to take place.

Making a boat "look right" is the difficult part for us all.

Actually, he designed the contour of the deck, but the cockpit section was something we built ourselves from a race cockpit from Pete Kidd and Ribeye who sponsored us for a while. The original can be seen on Richard Strawfords boat.

regarding no fears question about ce plates ,hin numbers ect ,since 1996 all boats should have relevant not fraudulent ce plates fitted and been through the rcd tests otherwise there insurance will be invalid obviously there will be some exceptions to the rules but this is generally the case according to my insurers .

I suspect faked CE marking would be a trading standards issue.

I’ve not had much to say on this thread, ‘cause I’ve been over in Belgium, “putting the World to rights” with Eupa…….however, since I’ve got a minute or two in the office now, I thought I’d throw my valueless opinion in to the ring….

Domino….
Are you sure that the hull you saw/pictured is a splash and not the hull that Olmec kept after some dispute about payment?
As most people will know, my memory is about the same as your average Goldfish, but I do recall a dispute about payment sometime in the last 12 months or so?
Now, I wonder why you have come onto this forum if you have a genuine grievance. Surely you didn’t really expect anyone on here to give you legal advice did you?
I’ll make it clear that I’m not backing or condemning Ed in any way here, it’s just that I feel very uneasy about folks who come on here shouting “Someone’s done me wrong”. Why is it not being handled in a professional manner? All this is, is “mud slinging” and it puts all parties concerned into a very poor light.
One or two people here have quoted “baggage” and that about sums it up. I am damned sure that this is not a simple cut and dried dispute.
Take it through the Courts and if you have a ruling in your favour, I’ll quite happily join you in condemning Ed, but until such time, I suggest that you don’t make yourself look quite so “unprofessional”.

Ribraff…
The same goes for you, Ed. Don’t get involved in a public slanging match, right or wrong, it won’t look good.

Paul Tilley..
Paul, why are you making comment on this thread? It just comes over as sour grapes and doesn’t do anything for your reputation. I know there was a falling out between you and Ed, when his lad, whose name I’ve forgotten, left to work for you and this just looks like a continuation of that. The thread about ProSport tends to confirm that.

People know that some sets of tubes from Olmec have had problems. There is no dispute there, I have seen them myself. The reasons for the problems are really only known to the people involved, the rest is speculation. I have also seen tubes from other “tubers” with problems and mistakes. Just remember that problems can occur even with skilled workmanship. Glues can fail, material can delaminate and mechanical damage can occur. Of course workmen can foul up, by rushing or poor technique, but until the cause for each failure is known the rest is just dangerous gossip and should be curbed.
Oh, and I would have another boat tubed by Ed. I would also be quite happy with one from Mr Tilley, Henshaws Etc..

As for the CE plate issue? Is there an allegation being made here, or is it just speculation and rumour? Remember what JK pointed out about legal action being taken. There are laws that apply to this forum, so take care everyone.

There you are JK… is that pompous enough for you??
