Whereabouts in Cork are they built? I wouldn't mind taking a look.

Who builds them?

Any Website? Some pics would be great!!

Ref: Redbay

Hmmmm...I'm not sure that Adrian Parks of Ballycastle would agree with you guys.

After picking up his new 11.4 with twin Yanmars....his boat ground to a halt because BOTH filters were clogged to the hilt with fibreglass.

The boys at Redbay had built the thing with the fuel tanks open throuout construction.

Tut tut!

Errrm, I may be wrong but isn't that picture of a Northcraft called "Ribbed for Pleasure" that was in Crosshaven recently. I'm almost positive it is. look at the pictures and then this link.

i take your point about the style of the RIB but its just that the blue RIB that you refer to above as an Excaliber rib is being advertised for sale as a Northcraft. So which is it? Are Excaliber Ribs splashed Nortcrafts??
