Thanks for the replies. Yes, Pikey Dave you are right about asking first. Perhaps not asked enough. The boats did look decent and a few mates have them hence I thought they seem pretty good. Also like the overall layout and size of it. Any recommendations on a decent 4.3m or there a bout sibs, preferably in a heavy duty version. Besides the quality of the finish of the engine I heard a lot of good things about the Johnson/Evinrudes in terms of performance. What others will be similar, ideally like to keep the engine, don't want to go down the 4 stroke path due to weight/size.

I bet it was Simon Higham you dealt with Me and another member off here bought new rib packages of them and the were sh*te not fit for purpose we both got full refunds after being given other boats and they were sh*te as well. Vincent Vega off here also bought a sib package of them and he had loads of trouble but did get some money back.

Take it back and demand your full money back now and don't let him fob you off by offering you a new sib, also tell him that you are a member of ribnet and that you have had some feedback from some past unhappy customers of this forum...he won't like any more bad publicity.

Good Luck.

PS, next time ask BEFORE you part with your cash

Do not accept anything other than a full refund, any problems report to Trading Standards.
