I think you maybe read to much into it. It is a slightly oddly worded statement - but its entirely possible they just hit the critical cashflow issues that so many before them in the marine industry have had, and SBS didn't bring the sales they longed for. Perhaps if you and Rick had placed those orders they'd still be around!

Shame. As I really like the Gemini ribs I assume that there is no dealer in the British isles? Not that I have the money to change my rib

I had conversations with them and that is all i am not sure it is appropriate to claim anything else especially claiming our orders (or not) would have prevented their collapse

Matt H. That I can tell you is not true. Woody left to help his wife and his son. Woody was great to deal with and had a good business brain. Dont get me wrong I would guess he had some interesting conversations with the so called MD but he would not have run away and his wife did I know need his help.

Look on thr bright side. the Carson RIB is back and will do v v well. tested in the maray firth FFS they must be good!! Well done Porbond Marine
