Top,

How rude!
Am sure the "bearded wonder" and the "God in Orange" have some appeal........no really they must!

Those two on the front would have not lasted in the cold of February!

The only bit I was not to keen on was the comment re the seating, after all the boat is aimed at families and jockey seats are no good if your feet dont touch the ground, making the benches far safe for the little ones.

Other than that a funny article, not sure it will bring customers running in but good all the same.


Cheers

ive noticed a few articles in sports boat and rib seem to miss the point a bit.
like you say, better people have an enjoyable safe ride in comfort,and come back for another trip. oh and beauty is definatelly in the eye of the beholder "no really it is"

hope the venture really takes off, thats one awesome rib

Hey our mums love us

Many thanks Top, we are working hard at it and seems to be going well.
We have 14 full boat loads booked in over the Easter weekend, only downside is the weather but we have no control over that!

As far as the boat goes so far can't fault it, she is great. Almost 200 hours and over 2000 miles since July 20th. We are also just shy of our 1000 customer carried.

So finger crossed we can keep it up over the summer.

Cheers

I think there is a typo on your prices page. It says you carry 4 passengers.

Jon, I think he is referring to your website - it confused me too. I think you are trying to say that the minimum number of passengers (to justify a trip) is 4 - but thats not what it says (or how I read it?).
