Fuller, You have no scruples, you're just a trouble maker and as for your inteligence being insulted? I'd have thought that you'd be very used to that by now.

Leeway way don't you stop 'rising to the bait' and concentrate on your boats?

Some from people who either have or have seen Leeway boats and can form their opinion on those and some from people who haven’t got a clue. Explain that phenomena? I can’t.

So that’s your stance on counterfeit goods in general is it? It’s OK to buy “knock-offs” because they’re cheap? The problem lies with the original manufacture, who may well be out of business because they can’t compete on price, when some unscrupulous person doesn’t have to factor in the huge cost of design and development? Interesting moral stance.

I think you are missing the piont.. for my ribs to be "knock-offs" as you so call it. does it not need to be a copy??

I know for a fact there are no other ribs the same as ours.

There aren't many large buisinesses out here that have morals, certainly ones making money. It's human nature, it's not right though!

Whilst we're on the subject of morals, people are calling/suggesting a Leeway a "splash/copy" but untill you prove it in a court of law or by some other means then it isn't, is it?

Yeh well I'd defend him there, he was a guy that was being "bullied" by a number of forum members and has been "bullied" for quite some time. I'd guess that he made a rash comment or two in defence to himself and his buisiness to try to calm the thread down a bit. Backfired perhaps, but never forgotten.....As peeps keep reminding.

We're not all blessed with good comunication skills!
