Northwest Ribs & Inflatables

Once again great service from Dave Cowell at NWRI (formerly at Eurocraft), yesterday picked Northwind Challenger up after having the rubbing strake re-attatched, a set of pressure relief valves fitted, and the name patch re-designed.
The original name patch was really well made with laser cut lettering, but because Eurocraft used a third party to produce these, the design was simplified. As soon as i found out that Dave had his own laser cutting equipment i decided to discuss with him the possibility of incorporating the 'compass rose' and re shaping the patch to match in with the existing wear patches along the tubes, to which the answer was a refreshing 'yeah we can do that no problem'.
not only was he willing to discuss various details at great length, he was also very accommodating in that he agreed to let me drop the boat off, and pick it up on a sunday morning as he understood that i just couldnt get to him during the week due to working away from home.
Not only did he and his team do everything i asked, but they also went right round the tubes looking for, and repairing any little areas where the hypalon was lifting - all in the price agreed!
In all, i really cant speak highly enough of the service i have recieved once again, thanks again Dave, keep up the good work

Looks a sound job Jonathan I do like the compass motive as well

Another great job from Dave Cowell and the Northwest Ribs and Inflatables team.

yeah im really pleased with it as i always felt that it wasnt complete without it. this is the old one - it now also looks more like part of the boat now rather than just a patch stuck on.
