What I'm getting at is if he wants he could make a good job out of it. From what I can make out different RIB manufacturers have so far had transom failures, hulls fail near the bow and tubes part company at the bow.
If you have a quick search on here you'll see another member having problems with transom knees that have cracked, again made by a RIB manufacturer, not a homebuild.
I can't see anyone with a bit of common sense associating any future failings (if there is any) with Ring.
When you build a kitcar and some one writes it off you don't go back to the donor car manufacturer nor is it a reflection on the donor car manufacturer.
