Question for Irish Ribsters

My mate has a Narwhal 4.6ish RIB and the sponsons on it are trashed. Any suggestions where the boat could be taken in North or Southern Ireland to either get them refurbed or replaced. Also what sort of money is involved? Might it might be an uneconomical repair?

I would have thought a trip up to Cushendall and visit Redbay would be the easiest. Also always interesting to have a snoop around the factory too


Ribnet is best viewed on a computer of some sort
