But true. We all know Codders and the way that he operates. Unfortunately, he feels the need to reply to every petty accusation. The whole Prosport thing has been trawled over at length on too many occasions. The poor guy that started this thread is seeking advice re. the brand, he doesn't need all of this crap.

Sorry Paul got carried away with the force 9 nonsense

So I will give my opinion on the two 8mt prosports I know of and have spent many hours on.........

quite a good ride even in the rough, smooth landing of waves, nice and nippy,
awful build quality, massive problems with tube quality, NO after sales help.
Would I buy one second hand? NO!

For the price that was paid for the prosports at the time, you got what you paid for...like most things in life!

The tube quality problems were dependent on who made the tubes - mine are excellent - built by Paul Tilley.

So

It has a great hull

Engine is very probably to small, 130 hp oil burner yep to small for paying public

Considering the tubes are one of the most vital parts of a RIB it does pay to consider who made them..........
