Should've gone to specsavers

Indeed, that is impressively unimpressive. It's certainly not the boat I had in mind!

Max apologies for giving wrong information about Brig going bust , was meant to be a warning just in case it was true . The person who lied to me about this will be getting a rollicking today . I had a long chat with Paul (wolf rock ) who is a business friend and he assures me that all is fine . Good luck and enjoy your purchase .

Spoke to Paul who was livid....need to remember guys peoples livelihoods can be broken by chatter on these kind of forums ..... A bit of responsibility please is required ..... Ok not to like my new boat... I don't really care... But each dealer is doing their best ...if I made a bad call in your opinions fine I will deal with it.

I just want to enjoy ribbing nothing more

Face to face is probably best ... in life in general

See you all soon

Horatio

Seriously, how committed are you? Ribcraft are nearer to you and the real deal. The difference in residual alone between a Ribcraft and a Brig would be colossal.

Not necessarily, there's always someone prepared to pay top dollar, it's just a case of finding the sucker correct buyer

True, but easier to sell a proper bit of kit to a well informed buyer than find a muppet to buy a pup. ;-)

Also, with more Brig units sold than RC, whilst it's unlikely to sell on here, there's arguably more buyers who want cheap fair weather boating. Plenty of boats languish on here, it's pretty niche in the wider boating market.

Yep, agree, as with most forums you can get some really good advice on here but after a while you find out which posts to flip past....
