Advice please

Hello All

I have looked and followed these forums for considerable time i now find myself needing advice on a delicate subject, in short i believe that my hull has been reproduced into a further mould tool and a boat supplied from this, i cannot believe that in this world we live in, it could so blatently be done, what should i do?

What I understand from your post is that you are a RIB builder and someone has splashed your hull design, is that right?

Great photos on your website, yes iam a boat builder not only do i build conventional Ribs but build and supply to some large yachts as tenders, my designer is a well known cowes sailor which interested me from your pictures.
The moulding was supplied and splashed, great shame as i did not think that people were still splashing for gain.

thanks for the kind words re pics! The ones on the site are not mine, but my mate Mike's. i will hopefully be getting some up there soon.

I don't really know anything about the law stuff involved with this, there are others on here who would give a much better answer. The first step I guess would be to get some legal advice and send them a letter or something.

What is your company and who is the designer? Or would you rather not say?

Tim

Naturaly iam very concerned with peoples saftey, some years ago when we decided to begin to build hand built (british excellence) i believe that i went through the correct proceadure, firstly i have a complete boat designed by a well known designer, then i built a prototype and went through the very extenisve and very costly CE mark process, the copy that has been produced is not CE marked for the size engines they have installed, yes a tragic problem, and just waiting to happen!!!
