Based upon the above.........

.............comments, I'd buy something else and from someone a little closer to home. If this is the way you feel whilst trying to spend a lot of money with a company, how on earth do you think you'll get treated when trying to resolve a problem ? ZODIAC ZODIAC ZODIAC ZODIAC....shall I go on ?

I bought a ProSport several months ago, I read a few posts regarding the problems some people have had contacting people at the factory. I have had a few occasions when I have wanted to discuss various issues, only very minor problems or just wanted to know more about the boat. On each occasion I have had a response within 1 working day. In fact in the last month they have answered the phone every time.

Perhaps I have been lucky but I thought it is only right to state my observations.

Worth it in the end

Bit slow at first getting through to Jason
But after a trip to Guernsey, well worth it the 6.5m we went out in was the best i had been, in really nice ride, very very smooth no slamming like some others i had been in, Jason seams a really nice young lad who is passionate about his ribs, cant wait till mine is finished

I have been told.....but this could be complete b*ll*cks......that he is having problems with the warehouse that he builds them in i.e. the owner wants it back. Not sure if he's found other premises or even if he's left the ones he's in, but could explain what's going on.

The least he could do is stick a notice on his website explaining the difficulties and then people maybe a little more understanding.

One of my friends has a pro-sport and is very happy with it and the support he recieved from Jason when he bumped the skeg and prop.

I too was very interested in a new 8.5m rib from Jason. After many attempts and eventually getting a bit sh**y with one of his workers he did call me back. Very nice & helpful but too interested in working the radio elsewhere - I gave up in frustration and took my cash to a more commercially aware operation.

I don't think its so much that the landlord wants it back, more that the site is being redeveloped so they will be moving soon.

Do you know if he's managed to find other premises yet? I can imagine it's a rather large pain in the bum to have to move!
