My understanding, with most boat builders, is there is normally a good reason for a hold up.
What have they told him?
What was/ is the hold up?

they haven't really told him anything, that the problem !! he's getting the boat through a dealer in ireland who won't give him a straight answer and any time he's rang the factory to find anything out they'll tell him that they will ring back or e-mail him but never do. i was on a boat with him last week when he rang the factory to find out what the story is and he was told they were going to look at the work orders and give him a ring back, the call never came !! the dive club i'm in here is buying a new boat and i's a toss up between an excalibur and ribcraft. were waiting to see my friends boat but it just ain't coming. so it's looking like excalibur are the leaders at the moment

The balconies were still not in place on sunday. I will be over friday night for the house warming with the crew of the lifeboat. Hope that is ok with you !
