Been away for a few days, still in France actually. Just noticed who the forums newest member is. Hope he has taken out some sort of Corporate membership as he will soon be trying to sell everyone his product. Hope he will forward JK a percentage of his profits.

I think my percentage of profits has and is going into

a) sponsorship of SOC
b) buying SOC crew a stereo in one of the remotest parts of America
c) paying for Alan and Clive to come and give a talk in guernsey flights hotel expenses etc etc

Hi

Thanks for a proper welcome

Not so much a refugee just about time I came on here and joined in instead of lurking.

For the benefit of the members here, what dirk was on about is the fact that I recommend Soltron alot mostly because I am involved in it and know that it is a good product and has certain properties that benefit marine engines.

This is one of the reasons Alan used it in the Spirit of Cardiff.

Any way you may hear me mention it from time to time but only as a recommendtion, totally up to you if you use it or not and if any of you are over in Guernsey tap me up for a freebie.

Apart from that I am here to learn more about RIBs and enjoy the chat.

Dom

Could another reason be because it's free?

Welcome Mr Depsol,


Must admit I am interested in any factual claims you have for the product.
The problem is with quoting Mr A as a egsample it could be construed as there may be a little incentive for him to be a little biased towards the product.

Is there any scientific stuff we can have a look at?

The recomendation and egsample of its savings does leave a rathere large margin for error dont you think?

Im glad you like ribs as they are the boats of the future.

To Dirk and Crazyhorse.
I do not use anything that isnt any good, free or not!!! I am very fortunate to be asked to try many new products from all over the world, most of them I have to say are bullshit over marketing. Anything I use on our expeditions has to be up to the challenge. I cannot afford to have kit failure at any stage. Say what you like, I know it works Alan P. Heres a question, why have two names?

Alan ,dont take this the wrong way,you have to admit that seeing that The Depsol sponsore your exploits ,you would be mad to say ,Hay listen folks its a load of old crap wouldnt you, therfore your in a difficult position on this matter.As no matter which way you want to go it is a possibility that your recomendations can be construed incorrectly.

Testing engines is a big job and interpreting results is a complex process.The egzample given is not scientific but are ones feelings on the subject.We all know the higher the horsepower to weight like on a SIB the harder it will be to determin the actual benefits gained if any of a fuel additive?

I feel its difficult and if Depsol can provide any clinical trials with your personel recomendations then that will do for me,and I will be using the product from day one.

Alan,

Crazyhorses remark "that Depsol sponsored your exploits" reminded me that I didn't get a receipt for my cheque!!

Only kidding.
