I think maybe we can leave out the slagging off now and let the customer make his own mind up. This kind of badmouthing is most unprofessional-specially from someone advertising in their signature that hasn't paid for a trade membership...

I can see that this is heated subject, but putting aside what ever, is it a good Rib?

No, I don't think you have the right to start badmouthing another business in public in front of a potential customer.

Quite frankly if I was a customer of yours you would have lost my business because of that little outburst.

Actually Gav, my interpretation of the ribnet rules is that you can put your website address in your signature - so long as you are not actively touting for business without being a trade member, see: Guidelines for commercial posting

However on the splashing issue - it has been discussed to death here in the past. I don't think Nos was necessarily condoning it, but the original questioner clearly recognised that this was an issue and simply wanted to know if the boats were actually any good - regardless of the origins of the design.

If someones intellectual property rights have been infringed then there are correct and appropriate routes for redress (ranting on the web is not one of them!). If the intellectual property is not protected (or properly protected) then it is actually quite legitiamite (legally) for someone to clone them.

Polwart could have put it better. Is it a good boat or not? Personal differences aside please.
