I have just read this thread from start to finish. I am not sure if it is my time of the month but I think the OP is riding this thread out way better than I would.
You typically join a forum to gain knowledge and speak with individuals who share a common interest. I thought his OP was quite clear in that he has bought a RIB and is obvious based on what he has bought he has paid a reasonable amount of money for it. I think immediately slating a new members choice of boat is bang out of order and some members could be a bit more constructive with their comments.
I appreciate everyone has their own preferences and views, if we didn't we would all be driving RC585 and 3.0l A5's
A forum should be welcoming, and it may pay certain members to review the community rules http://www.rib.net/forum/misc.php?do...ork&page=rules
I am off now to take my happy pills
