It was all sounding good until the above.

Ribeye ribs are ideal as hire/charter boats and suit a certain sector of the market, but let's not get carried away.

The positive views on this thread must have been very hard for you.

You were sensible not to have repeated some of your previous comments about Ribeye over the years. Well done.

I wouldn't waste my money on a ribeye, there's much better boats out there. The build quality is really iffy and they can't handle rough weather. I saw one in a magazine once.

Probably the most patronising comment I have ever read on here!

I wrote and deleted several replies Cookee. Timw craves a reaction and thus a bit of attention. He couldn't give a toss for Ribeye ribs in truth' or any other brand.
The only attention the boy guy ever had, was as the dorm 'fag' at school.

Hi all

Can Ribeye put on a demo day for those that avidly dislike us? We are incredibly proud of our range today and have evolved immensely since the production issues of many years ago. I will gladly put on a day for you at our Dartmouth HQ - take some boats out, have some lunch and hear your feedback. It could be fun?!

Please do message me if you would like this to be arranged.
