Go and see him and test one. I wouldn't spend the money on a new Rib without a test drive. I've seen his own one and it looks pretty good, but don't take my word for it.

Well he seems to be a dab hand with fibreglass no matter what!!!

I still think the whole "splashing" thing is a bit hard to comment on - after all someone must have made the first RIB so in theory ALL others are copies anyway.

Also all RIBs seem to have console and Jockey seats etc - again someone must have been first!!!

I think the parentage of many of the RIBs out there is somewhat obscure anyway so I wouldn't let the splashing bit on it's own put you off.

Iam going to stick my head up above ramparts and say yes
I have seen the products at most of the stages and my humble opinion
better than a lot on offer out there and not a bad price

Sleep better knowing that he contributed nothing to the design work, didn't have the designers input on his construction methods and is making money from someone else's graft.

The end product may be good, but in my eyes its not his to make or sell.
