to post a pic of a piece of sh*t some other company has made just makes you look even more of a jerk as this thread is for leeway.
I asked this question before but received no answer. To what ISO Standard do you work Lee?

In this country you need to follow what we call ISO (International Standards Organization) standards. they set specifications to follow to make the craft comply to the rcd (Recreational Craft Directive) so the craft can be CE marked, The CE mark is the manufacturer’s claim that the product meets the essential specifications and is a safe craft.

OK thanks for that, things are a little clearer now. Is there an actual ISO Std for boatbuilding though? I've heard about stuff like ISO9000 (I think it is) in the auto industry, whats the standard you build to for RIB building?

if you join the bmf (british marine fedoration) they can tell you what standards you need to follow, but you need to purchase them.

Why not? Falcon do, as did Skoda at the height of their 'Shiteness'.

If a Skoda Estelle, is the only NEW car they could afford, it was a attractive deal.

Of course, Skoda were at least responsible for their own design.

I don't really care that Leeway Composhites copied the 18 & 25 Phantom, it goes on all the time. It just gauls me that he's such a dishonest, lying toerag, and continues to to insult my, and others intelligence with his lies.

I had decided some time ago to leave the subject be. But, like JK said, some people are happy to be fed shit, some are offended.
Leeways Thick skin, stupidity and dillusions of adequacy beggars belief, and I weakened.

OK, we're going round in circles again.

I'm sure that there is enough to read in the various Leeway threads for anyone to make up their own mind.
