He was looking to sell some time ago, 12 months maybe, but saw a new advert out a week or two ago, although I forget where now.

Here you go:

"Leeway ribs have been in production for the last 8 years with great success and great reviews.

We have a full range of rib sizes from 2.5m right up to 10.3m and lots of different deck layout configuration mouldings for all needs including cabin mould and several console designs.

Included in the sale of this successful business are all moulds, plugs, design rights, websites, brand name with builders rights and world wide production rights and world wide sales. We have dealers around the world and have ever increasing inquires and opportunity to even sell licensing rights world wide? all this for a steel at only 60,000
"

how appropriate to demonstrate spelling skills in the advert, not to mention the word "steel" or i suspect what should have been "steal" considering everything that has been written about Leeway build practices!

sure due diligence will dig up some interesting questions to be answered.

What an unpleasant, damaging and snide post.

Someone spends 8 years building up a successful business and then decides to sell it and you then try and trash it. What the hell has the vendor's spelling ability got to do with it? And just because you've read some forum chat about his business you start talking about due dilligence and theft.
Hang you head in shame...
