Claiming that Redbay are The Strongest Ribs in the Market is a very strong claim. Most people would agree that Redbay build very good boats and have a very happy customer base but what evidence do you have to back up your claims.

Ezgoing - I have no gripe with Redbay and they are certainly high up my list for when I miraculously win the lottery (without entering!). But some of your claims about their benefits are a bit subjective.

I have never heard anyone criticise the seakeeping of a redbay - but I also can't recall anyone criticising seakeeping of a ribcraft.

Probaly the ssstrongest rib in the market
baydreamer is already asking you to justify this. Are you claiming a 6.5m redbay would be significantly stronger than a new Pac22, a similar sized Delta, etc?

Ease of access to manafacturer
that all depends where you are starting from. Gael force/Excalibur are probably no less convenient for the OP in Dublin; and Ribcraft at Yeovil is not the other end of the world. I would have thought it was more important to get a boat that didn't need to go back to the manufacturer than one that was made locally but had to go back.
Quote:
Customisability
Ribcraft will certainly customise your boat too. In fact apart from the high volume mass production people (ribeye, valiant etc) I can't think who wouldn't? even humber (or their dealers) will build to your requirements.
Quote:
Resale value
never noticed anyone complain about the resale price of a ribcraft either.

If Ez boy ever swaps the Shedbay in for another brand, will that particular brand then become the mutz nutz?

For a newbie to this site sifting through the brand ownership bias is next to impossible. I like a Vmax, but wouldn't begin to sssuggest that it's better than any other boat in every dddept.

Far be it from me to spoil your fun taking the rise, but you'll probably find that Tim W's Ribeye is one of the dryest riding Ribs on the market.
