the way i see it is that although there may be an issue over splashing ribs, which if done is wrong, im not necessarily saying it has been in this case, but this thread was opened by someone wishing to ask about the 'boats qualities', such as sea handling, built quality etc from people who know about the boats, eg have bought one.

surely i think this discussion has happened many times without anyone willing to concede defeat, and so doesnt benefit anyone! i cant remember where it was said, but someone on this thread said that if there is a case to answer for, the aggreived parties are in their right to contest it legally where leeway would have to provide evidence of originality, however, if that is not the case and noonewishes to contest, he doesnt have to...........lol please bear in mind im on the side lines to this 'discussion' but have been following it! i do agree that splashing is entirely wrong, and that is totally unfair on those who take the time and money to design such boats, do think here there may be a case for an "innocent til proven guilty" stance

however im sure the person who strated this thread would appreciate some feedback on the ribs themselves! all the best everyone!

i have had many makes and modles of all sorts in, for all sorts of jobs. We do more than just make ribs.
OK, so to re-cap, are you denying categorically and placing in black and white on this forum, that you took a mould off a Phantom 25 running surface at your workshop? (careful now Lee!)

ha lol! Your more than welcome to come and veiw/inspect/ my mere humble hard boatmoulds/boats/industrial mouldings.

Like i said before you could clear up all this bollix, simply by showing off your plugs that you have made so many of! You started this lot by posting your claims of building your own plugs from scratch from your own cad drawings, yet when people question the integrity of your claims you change your story to using 2 hardboats! and so on and so on........

In all this, not once have i seen or heard anyone come to your defence and catagorically state that they have seen any hull plugs you have built from scratch??

your vagueness says it all!

look forward to seeing your 8.3m rib, of course i'm sure it wont resemble a P25 running surface.... geez that'd be well freaky!

you miss my point.......again. i didnt say YOU expect people to come to your defence. If you are selling so many ribs to so many happy customers then where are they, why have none of them popped up here on ribnet, do you not get any visitors to your workplace? does anyone know you exist on the IOW?
You know what i mean when i say Vague, human nature i suppose when you have dug a hole so big you cant see out!!

Good luck anyway with the P25 splash.
