Paul a lucky escape, just think what that would have cost to try and put that lot right. Dread to think what a boat must be like for Riva to think of it as a bad one !

Talking of Riva he has a Humber for sale with Merc 1.7 TD in it. They have had it for a while why not try an offer for it. suggest 18k and if not then walk away from that one too as there are several humbers with TD for sale at the moment. The coding by the way isn't transferable according to the MCA.

I am very sorry you had a wasted couple of journeys, i never saw the rib close up, let alone have a sea trial.
when i went there the tide was out and the guy said it's down there, when do you want it.
I still can't work out how they are still in bussiness with there attuide.
I am so very happy with my Pacific may be a bit slow but 13 worth of fuel Brixham to Plymouth, i ain't swapping for anything.

Can't you bump up the Hp of the lump to get a bit more speed. To be fair you are unlikely to come acros a better Hull than a Halmatic

Hi Ian,

No problem with you - you gave me it straight and I found the boat just as you described.

I was just so disappointed with Exe Leisure! With a lot of TLC - and cash, the boat could be resurrected and they led me to believe that by my second visit the boat would be respectable - if tatty. Not so.....

Anyway I thank you very much for your help - you were nothing less than honest! For the record I did not pay a deposit before sea trial - thank goodness! Who in their right mind would with such a boat?

I am still on the look out for a 7.5m + diesel rib - be sure that I shall call you first when engine work is needed.

Thanks once again for taking the time to talk me through your experience with Exe.
