Are Leeway RIB's any good?

I have read all the stuff about splashing, but does anyone have any first hand experience about how well made/good they actually are? eg, quality of materials, construction standard, fit-outs etc.

Read this thread-it'll take a while but the same question was asked 2 weeks ago.

Leeway


JK PLEASE lock this thread before the slagging match starts again!

No - I've read all that stuff.

Can anyone who actually owns/uses one tell me what they think of it.

No comments on its roots, please!

Thanks.

Get Lee to take you for a test ride and a look round the workshop. I suspect he'll be happy to but don't quote me on that-I'm not him!

I've got a console from him and it's really good.
G E seemed pretty impressed when he went out in one.
