So you seriously want to buy a Shakespeare? Feel free to advise what spec/stage/ tube options you require and I or Jono will generate a quote for you.
Believe it or not and despite all that has been said on this thread I am still interested in this boat and those tubes at trade

I haven't, you added 2+2 and came up with 5. We are 150 miles apart, I don't think we have ever met, the only exception might have been the sub 5m cruise round the Isle of Wight middle of last year, but I can't remember is Bilge Rat was on that or not.

So the plot thickens.....a bidding syndicate, wonder what Ebay would think about this, false bidding to push the price up

Is it the same boat? I know that both we and Shakey have several boats on order/in build/in stock. Shakey are clearing 'em out as quick as they can to tool up for Revenger work. If Jono has been using "his little helper" to push up the price, I'll give him a bollicking when I see him. What I don't understand, as a E-bay-phobic why you would need to do that. Why not just put on a reserve? Or is that me being naive?...

Excellent...., but I'm gonna be having the one Jono's just bought off Steve, 'cause me big 'Umber will be "darn Sarf" this season, so I want a boat for "oop North " too...

Sorry for the mistake, but when you replied to the question to Bilge with the comment about "putting your hands up", I naturally assumed that's what you were refering too.. Oops.. silly me!

... about as much as I think about you accusing Jono of selling tubes that won't fit a boat, when even the Tube maker, Ed, has confirmed they will....

Jono... I really think you need to read back through this entire post as i've not accussed anyone of anything ! i've mearly asked the questions and yourself, Jono Garton and Ed have supplied the answers, i was unaware of Jono Gartons secret little helper pushing up ebay bids when this all started.
