Check em out at the Southampton boat show and have a chat to Jason!
matt - I'm sure there are some differentiators hidden somewhere in that message, but I'm not seeing them. Don't get me wrong Ribcraft are great boats; but they've moved factory through growth (so whilst still in Yeovil have evolved as other brands have - probably for the better), and all the brands listed earlier offer various layouts and will bespoke to your requirements and open their factory doors.

I'm obviously missing summat here. I thought Matt's comment was pretty straightforward & inoffensive & certainly less "exuberant" than some of his posts. So why the harsh comment from Mollers & the cryptic comment from Poly, is there some history?

Matt's comment was edited after Mollers "feedback"...

...I try to make all my posts cryptic that way you get fun unpicking them. However on this occasion it was pretty straightforward: Matt H gave a list of reasons why you should by a Ribcraft but almost all those reasons were all equally applicable to all of the other brands being proposed so weren't really reasons for selecting Ribcraft over the competition.

If people are going to "tell" a user what to do I'd like to see them back it up with some substantive reasoning.

Thanks for all the comments, keep them coming. Looks like Osprey and Ribcraft have some very strong fans but no one yet to support XS.
