Fake ribcraft

Just thought you should be aware of a RIB on e bay that is being passed off as a RIBCRAFT 7.8 and it is not one of our Hulls.
We Re-tubed the Boat about 3 Years ago so it may look like our RIB but is a 90 ies Chinook from memory.
I have contacted the seller and he is not interested in correcting the listing and fleebay are not really interested.
Buyer beware...

RIB 2008 7.8 M RIBCRAFT WITH 50K WORTH OF EXTRAS L@@K | eBay

"CON TROLLS" says it all really!

Says he has it advertised on boats and outboards too - they are very good at removing adverts that are false or scams.

There was an issue on there around 6 months ago with a pseudo Osprey by the name of "Time thief". I was speaking with Roy at Mannings Marine and he told me it was not an osprey and took on the issue from there.

I suspected it wasn't a Ribcraft when I saw the Osprey 'Ranger' console fitted.

I saw the advert and have placed a `Report item` notification to Ebay. My mate was nearly taken in for a moment until his friend said there was something not right about the way it looks.

Contacting e bay

Its a nightmare getting hold of Ebay I have e mailed them but they must have so manycomplaints it cannot be managable I will post up his reply when challenged. you will notice he has linked a youtube video which my computer savvy son posted a comment on the video saying it was not a Ribcraft and then he diabled comments on the page...
The sad thing is that someone will buy the RIB and contact us for support and then they will be really upset that they have bought a much older boat than claimed..by about 20 years
