reading these events i would suggest everybody thinks very carefully before letting them near there pride and joy
i wouldnt buy a bottle of 2 stroke from them .
if all ribsters steered well clear of them then how long would he be able to employ 8 people he wouldnt be able to crush a grape let alone you
it takes a lifetime to get a good reputation and a minute to lose it!!

I've been trying to buy a new propnut for my 200 Suzi recently, its a long story, not helped by the fact that the only Suzi dealer left around here will spend hours telling you about what he's done in the past, but for some reason can never help with anything now.

Somebody lend me the cash to open a yard that gives good honest service at a reasonable price.

nasher have you tried bill at home marine in emsworth, not saying he is good but as a suzuki dealer, you have to wait months to get your engine serviced, and it is because he is so busy. i assume you use the pompey dealer?

Bill is OK from the dealings I've had with him, but he is let down by the lad that works for him.

I walked in with my prop nut and explained I needed a spare, and what it was off, he took it from me, rolled it around in his hand for about thirty seconds about 6 inches from his face, as if he'd never seen a prop nut before, did a builders impression with a loud intake of air through his teeth, and said 'Na, won't have one mate' and gave it back.
When pressed as to the possibility of ordering one, I was told it'd be about thirty quid and may take a week or so.

Knowing they are 13 new from Suzuki I turned around and walked out.
Don't like people taking the piss!

Found a used one at Bens outboards with the large washer for a fiver.

Wait a minute, they took your boat without your consent.

Er normally that's called theft isn't it, even if you return it intact or otherwise?

Shame. How about using the boat commercially under the wrong CoP? Might make them speed up sorting it out!

So they were using the boat commercially, wonder if the driver had a commerical licence ? phone call to the MCA perhaps. Oh and it was involved in an accident, call to the the MIAB too ?

Surely their insurance wouldn't cover them for using a customer's rib for commercial purposes without their permission??
