We run a marine valet/maint company and if we operated with the same "couldnt give a monkeys" attitude we would be out of business in a month!!!

the marine community is very close and word about a bad job or attitude spreads like mad along the Hamble

In the past many of the rib manufacturers-Revenger,Aquaflyte,Breeze Ribs,Leeway,and Shakespeare Have used Olec for tubing .I hope after this They will see sense instead of POUND signs in their pockets.I would be interested to have some sort of response on here from the above and your comments as the consumer(constructive comments please)However I,m sure some will say oh no not this again but i think this is a valid point to be discussed and may avoid another LURCHER AND FJORDRAFTING saga to list a couple
