bilge rats

idear is good we good inclued older boats as all boats get old in the end if they don,t make old age they must be crap

I think that to have a list of ribs in quality/class/ability would be very good
and would show new ribbers what to look for. you pay the money so you make
the choice in the end but it would be nice to know from the members that have owned diffent ribs over the years. my choice was made by asking ribnet
about each boat and seeing what comments came back i did not test drive
my boat before buying as you guys had said the set up was ok
quote
I really can't see the point of a poll, how can an owner of say a 4 metre rib give an "educated" opinion on say which 8 metre to buy?

your missing the point you only make comments on boats you have owned

Your not looking for a lot of input on this poll then?

And Manos, if your extending that invite to myself, thank you very much but I will have to decline, I only travel to countries where you are able to flush toilet tissue, putting it in a waste basket is not my idea of civilisation!

I think you visited Greece when you were an apprentice and before you opened that little shop of yours . Things have progressed since then.

Realistically though if we did do a poll it would have to be against boats up to 3 years old, any older and it all comes down to the amount of use and abuse the boats taken over the years, i.e left in the water all season against trailerd, club safety boat against the same boat used twice a year for leisure holidays etc and of course the owners own commitment to looking after his investment.

And its also worth remembering that manufacturers like Avon dont make the same sort of boats that they made 20 years ago, these days the buyer wants more refinments and better levels of comfort.
