Just a quick update on how good Barnet Marine are!

I had the extended fuel tank put onto my 7.2m XS-Rib, unfortunately the extended bit isn't moulded like the rest of the boat and so had to fabricated for me. Laurence has said that they are looking into making a mould for this and I would suggest can be hopefully ready this year.

However as mine was fabricated for my RIB I askd whether I could have a seat cushion made and sent him a detailed technical drawing with all the sizes on expecting to be charged for the seat cushion.

Nope........seat cushion arrived today with some tough sticky stuff with which to attach the seat cover and no charge! How cool is that!!!

Now I'm not saying your gonna get a free seat out of Barnet as I notice they now have them as an option on their website, but it is refreshing to see a supplier that is open to suggestions, acts on them and rewards the suggestion with the odd freebie.

Both myself and Steve G (swginn) are in the process of asking for removable backrests with a simple but ingenous design (courtesy of Steve) so will let you all know how we get on!

Now the thing to do is find out who else is registered to the above address!

a very quick search produced the result that that building is a load of serviced offices for companies to hire.

No other boat manufacturer in the same building then?

I'd have thought knowing how most companies opperate they tend to use the same people to setup similar things within their business i.e. they use the same company or lawyers for formations, trusts, registered offices, copyright etc etc.

Keep digging as it's all good information and you never know you might hit the jackpot!

Barnet Marine is also registered at that address! But I guess that still doesn't get us any closer to who makes the hull!

B*gger! I was hoping Barnet wouldn't have been registered there and it was registered by the actual company building the ribs!

Looks like another successful smoke screen by Barnet!
