For what it is worth, ie 2p, I suggest someone gives MSS a poke and asks them to set up a 5% discount code on their online shop.

It is almost certainly not worth the 5.80 doing otherwise.

If not enough people buy from them and they get the hump then I guess that is one bridge burnt, but it saves someone putting their neck & wallet on the line.

I guess they could hold dispatch until 10 orders are in. Put in the terms of their Ribnet Discount...

Good idea there Malthouse!

Ooooh, Wikipedia just linked your post to their page that says "Shameless, for example see here"

I suspect they would ship regardless, since technically they should not bill cards* until they dispatch.

* Credit cards being another convenience you have to pay for, currently a "good" rate is 2%. At this time of year I imagine many of the 18 interested parties are thinking of exercising the flexible friend. But you can take the price up from 183 to 187 just for that, and still nothing left in the kitty for when Mr Cockup pops in the back door.

If Marine Super Store have the buying clout to beat any other retailer and are prepared to ship unit by unit, to take cards and handle warranty issues then good on em.

Alright, it is a fair cop, I am up to 4 pence now.

Ok, here's how it is: JSP asked me to keep an eye on things while he is "away". Technically, I'm supposed to nick you for that, but I'm going to let you off with a giggle as it's a first offence.

Can we agree on who actually wants to go ahead !!

if everyone who really is prepared to buy now and is ready to place an order replies here today I will share the details later and you can all phone up direct and quote "Ribnet" to confirm your order.

Otherwise lets just forget it and put this thread to bed

Bloody hell - no wonder RIBnet has a bad reputation for group buying - all you lot do is wind yourselves up like clockwork mice then run around squeeking until you run out of steam - is it a man thing!!!

Lets get this back to basics shall we.

The point of this thread was to see who might/would be interested in a group buy EPIRB.

Now we have that list I am happy to source the cheapest Fastfind 210 I can find between now and the London Boat Show. No order will be placed this side of Christmas - so Chris I'm afraid your offer (as the cheapest) will not be taken up by me on behalf of any on the list.

Speak to Chris direct and ask me to remove your name from the list - see above post

Once I have the cheapest price I will post here and let everyone know how its going to work re purchasing. This will be either direct between the sller and the buyer or through me in which case you will need to pay me up front and they will be sent out via courier or collected at the Christmas dinner in Feb.

Rules of the games are:

Please only post here if you are interested in buying one

Please PM me if you are a trade member or RIBnet member with an offer - do not post in this thread


Those interested in buying a Fastfind 210 are:

Knot Yet x 2 - Membership not required
Dan Worth x 1 - Membership not required
C2 Ribs x 1 - Membership not required
Jimbo x 1 - Membership not required
Ian M x 1(maybe 2) - Membership not required
250kts x 2+ - Membership not Required
Chris x 1
Puffin x 1 - Membership not required
Blackroady x 1
Matt H x 1 - Membership not required
Neil Harvey x 1 - Membership not required
Humber P4VWL x 1 - Membership not require
Tony Mac x 1 - Membership not required
Leapy x 1 - Membership not required
Tony T - x 1
Gtflash x 1

For what its worth the waffle that gone on in here has seen a trade price offer 170 slip through the net - so shut the fuck up and just post if you would like one

I'm now in hospital (you will be relieved to hear) - so no posting from me for a few days

Jxx (with apologies for sounding like a dictatorial old fart - which of course I am)
