Scorpion

Dont think you can say people who buy expensive RIBS are stupid, We have brought 4 new scorpions over the years and dont think were stupid, some may say differently but think were normal, Depends on your situation I thinkm, If you can afford one then why not, you get a boat that you want which is built to your exact requirement and its a interesting process to go through.

I have dealt with Graham and Joy for many years and found the aftercare to be great.

Thats my thoughts anyway.

Julian

thats very interesting julian you think people who buy second hand dont have the money to buy new? well my friend you are truely mistaken its people who got handed money that dont mind throwing it away, people who have spent a life time earning their money tend not to like giving it away.

i guess its the same as i think your mad for buying new

however if you are happy then thats great but when you sold your ribs did you go home and think great i had a amazing time on that rib and i only lost 30-40k or do you think you got kicked in the teeth?

come on then tell us the depreciation on your 4 scorpions? bet you could have bought a house

Pop, I really think that you are starting to make this personal and your tone is pretty agressive. You have no idea how Julian makes his money or me for that matter and it is not the point of the discussion.

He is happy with his new boats and I am happy with mine. You are happy with yours so get over it

hey look i was talking about the acrtic blue and goldfish ribs and its been changed into scorpions as i think someone suggested my friend have a look at them. both of us have had scorpions and revengers and are not intreasted in them anymore as i stated i was not happy with their after sales neither was my friend. you are taking it personally because you are the mad man who paid way too much and when you sell it you will see but if you are so rich you have money coming out your ears then so what have a good time

"You have no idea how Julian makes his money or me for that matter" discussion.

i have no desire to know how you make your money but i know how you lose it

do you have any info on the above mentioned ribs

Yes, they both cost 60k plus and have a limited exposure in the UK market, good luck...
