Hi TurboDiesel,

In answer to some of the pionts brought forward in this discution.

Doug at stormforce did have our mk1 6.3m and due to this it has a lower bow and freeboard along with other changes made including console and other cosmetics. The mk2 has now been in production and proven to be more in line with customers requirements and improved conciderly.

In relation to the tubes, all tubes are made and fitted by a well known company and come with full warrenty.

we use TIDEL (paul tilley) and henshaw inflatable depends on order who can fit us in first... both very good and well known for this.

It is a very important and expensive part of the craft so needs to be done right and come with full warranty.

Hi Downhilldai,

i think its around 56 ish now. We have a company in Canada showing great interest in building leeway ribs under licence so maybe many more will be hitting the world wide market soon.

My understanding is that you buy the tubes in and fit them your self

(not trying to pull you apart just trying to point out the facts)
