I own one -

In answer to your questions

Yes we are pleased with the quality and the hull.

Tubes from Olmec which we are also pleased with, although some people have recently not been pleased with them.

The reason why people are getting anoyed is that it has been discussed a lot before, however, the previous discussions have been more to do with the hulls origins as opposed to whether its any good or not.

That's only your opinion, I personally think there's a lot more mileage left in it!

We can arrange a demo run in one of our ribs if you are interested..

I can do good discount prices on the 8.3m and 7.3m as moulds are free at this pressant time. The 6.3m has a order waiting list.

Joakim

Dont worry mate, most topics get discussed on here again and again.

I am an owner and happy, if your serious about buying one have a chat with Lee, he uses my boat as the demo boat.

What size do you have on your Rib Doug? I will take a closer look at Leeway in the end of summer.

Leeway RIB

6.3m RIB with 90 HP

We were originally looking at the 115. I have found the 90 gets 40 knots without any problem. Its a very light boat and planes easily. My conclusion is your best of putting on a smaller engine than you would generally think for the same size boat. Keeps fuel, service and purchase prices all down as well.
