I'll keep saving my pennies until I can afford a decent sized one.

Cheers

Jon

AWESOME RIB!!!

Just got back from the Guernsey trip. Jason could not have been more accomodating. Lifts to and from the airport (Note this, if you make a trip, taxi's don't run Sunday mornings). Full inspection of the workshop and employees. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. I spec'd my layout and equipment and Jason made very sensible suggestions to utilise space.
The employee laying a hull is experienced and very clean and accurate in his work. The workmanship runs through to the finish on the boat. It is clean, neat and an awesome looking package.
The demo on Saturday involved a 6.5m 120hp diesel which ran upto about 40mph. The ride was smooth, very smooth. No slippage in a full lock turn at full throttle from a standing start.
There was a 2' chop and in head, following or beam sea the boat wasn't affected. No slamming at all.
The beam is ample for a double console and room to pass comfortably round it between the tubes.
Attention to detail stands out on these ribs and I'll post some piccies mid week with some detail of the hull etc.

All in all a great trip and I'm buzzing now. Roll on March!!!!!
If you are thinking of a Pro Sport, and I know a few of you are, take a trip to Jason. It is well worth the visit, especially with the amount of money you are thinking of shelling out.

If you have any questions post them here or PM me. If I can't answer them, I know a man who can, as I took my Technical Advisor and fellow drunk!

Yep the 9M was the one AFTER mine!
No colour listed though, BLACK would be good!

Nothing firmed up with distributors yet as far as I could make out, but obviously talks have been going on. Don't know what stage they are at.

Yep, it was a good trip but I wouldn't recommend trying to exceed your duty free allowance when travelling with Yasser Greenwood. His swarthy complexion makes him look like an arab terrorist which attracts the customs men like flies. He thinks he looks inconspicuous in a crowd but the fact that he's nearly nine foot tall belies this. The air hostess asked him to move to the back of the plane because it was out of trim.

Guernsey is a nice place but it's full of very old people. I had a sneaking suspicion that Yasser had booked us into a nursing home rather than a hotel. This was confirmed when I found a rubber sheet on the bed and a commode by the side of it.

Many thanks to Jason for his hospitality.
