Hi Yakayale,

If you had pressed the "Next page" button at the bottom of the page and looked around a bit you would have found this:
Anyone have a Leeway Rib

Otherwise, use the search function at the top of the page

To the rest of us, I think you should stuff all the threads into a "Leeway" section.
Or just to annoy the **** out of people, link each request thread to another request thread, to another request thread!

Yep there is definitely room for a separate forum on the subject

Have to say though, all the comments from people who actually own them seem to be "pro", and having checked out the prices, I have to say it would be on my shortlist if I was buying a new rib, scorpions and things like that being just a weeeee bit out of my price range

Yakayale, put "Leeway" into the forum search function, set aside a couple of hours, grab 3 or 4 beers and read on, there are "quite a lot of opinions on the subject" to put it mildly

Dear YAKAYALE, I'm about 2 weeks away from Leeway finishing my Rib. I'll be more than happy to tell you all about it then. So far I've been more than happy with the service, price , etc ...........

Please feel free to pop over if you get chance. We can arrange a demo run in one of our ribs to show you the excellent sea handling ability and the quality of our craft. we have a waiting list for the 6.3m so i would advise to place an order fast if that is the size you are after. we can offer excellent prices on our 8.3 and 7.3 for a short time period only.

Please do a search for other thoughts from other customers. we have 100% satisfaction from all our customers. we are getting quite a cult following for our range of ribs and as a request we are looking into a range of clothing with the leeway logo.

we are ever increasing our rang of ribs and have plans for a pro 6.3m. with moulded internal deck with moulded rear bench. we have new craft in the pipeline i.e 9.3m and 10.3m ribs.

we are allso just looking into locating to a new factory with water frontage, pontoons and a slipway.

Was having a chat to chap who has one in the marina here and was very pleased with it.

Looked like the 6.3 version.
