Boat and Jetski World (Osprey Inflatables)

Boat and Jet Ski World went into liquidation on Monday 5 September 2005.

I've removed a previous thread as it appears that comments made may not help various people who have claims to make. This is not something that I would normally do, but I wouldn't want anyone to lose out because of comments made in the heat of the moment. Aplogies to anyone whose posts have been caught in the crossfire.

It's not a forbidden subject, and you're free to continue the discussion here. Please keep it calm and civil though.

Thanks for your understanding!

John

JK;

Just to make sure that everybody knows and to correct what you wrote.

Boat and Jetski World is distributor for Osprey Ribs in UK and are named Osprey inflatables.

IT IS NOT Osprey Ribs that went to liquidation, Osprey Ribs is owned by Brugge Marine Center in Belgium.

So who makes "builds" ospey RIBs... someone mentioned laminators in the UK, is it a design that the rights are sold to a different company in many countries so build quality can vary? I'm just interested.

Nope;

The laminator is the same as it always been even before Brugge Marine Center bought Osprey around 7 years ago or something like that, he is only laminating Ospreys.

OK still advise this bit as far as the credit card company is concerned
equal liability for any breach of contract or misrepresentation may have occurred under S75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. Which is always a good reason to stick some of it on the plastic!
and roofer needs to contact the insolvency practitioners to advise that the ski is his property and not that of the business concerned.

yes all osprey ribs are laminated in the uk,
they are then sent to where ever for distrubution,uk belguim etc,
one company is solely responsible for lay up of hulls, and one hell of a nice guy.
