Brought the display boat

Hi Nick

Having chased three different suppliers who all promised two weeks but in fact could not deliver untill late July, or in one case September I purchased the display boat that was on the Rib-x stand at the Ribex exhibition in IOW

The delivery date was key to making the decision, but it also looked the Biz...

Will post pics as soon as I get it..

regards

Gazza

Feed back as promised

Hi Guys

Picked up the new boat from Ribex today,

Delivered bang on time and to the exact spec..

Had a great session testing her out on their lake.

Then towed her home from Leicester to Exeter...

Tonight I am a happy ribber.........


many thanks Martin, and Colin

It is done!

OK so I pressed the wrong button in frustration!!!

I order the boat yesterday so you can all relax

6.5M Solent with a rack of the appropriate extras.

And don't worry, lots of photos (proud new dad) promised when it arrives in mid September.....

Well done Bruce! May I be the first (of many) to congratulate you on your excellent news. Roll on September - and if you can't wait that long, you're welcome on Blue Ice any time!

Thanks to all friends

It was nerve racking.

And honourable mentions and loads of thanks to Parker (thanks Paul, Andre and David), Coastline (thanks Brian), Barnett (thanks Laurence).

All of the above were serious contenders, and gave me lots of time and support. I would have been very pleased to have bought from any of them.

For reference I also considered Tohatsu, JBT Marine (Ballistic), Ribcraft, Osprey, Ribeye / Ribtec, Ribsmarine, Rib-X. These were all possible solutions, but for various reasons did not meet our needs.

But above all can I thanks those of you who put up with my indecision and answered the many, many questions... some of which are still being asked.

If I can pass any of my (dubious) wisdom and experience gleaned from the buying process, please do not heistate to PM me.

Now I have to wait until mid September.....

Cheers

Bruce
