But in typical Northcraft fashion, its a half baked effort
I hope they're better at building RIBs than writing copy for their website. I really haven't seen anything that bad before (although the 'bottoms' page is nicely illustrated).

Hard to get hold of but worth it.

As are Tornado and Humber! What is it with RIB companies, you buy their boats you want some stuff and they never return your calls or emails?

Havent seen any Northcrafts about for a while. Are they still making RIBS? Looking at their pricing they are VERY cheap. Do their boats have a good rep? Good sea hulls? Tough boats? Basically are they any good?

Humber were dead easy to get hold of, most of the companies I dealt with have been fine regarding answering calls. Replying to emails is a different matter but Humber, Ribcraft, Tidel and Henshaws all got back to me via email as well.

A member on here is a UK tornado dealer. I'm sure I read a post by him/her the other day.

Don't know how up to date it is but FYM are only about 20 miles up the road so I might pop in at the weekend and have a nose about.
