Rib/Boat Companies in the south

HI Nothing particularly earth shattering about this thread but I was wondering just how many Rib manufacturers repaires are based on the South coast. Say between Chichester and Poole.

I can think of about four or five but there must be more.

Can anybody think of any

I got Ribtec, Ribcraft Ocean Safety, Cougar and fairweather Marine

28 in total or there are more?? 28 is not that many!!

In Greece for example there are

1. 54 RIB importers
2. 42 RIB manufactures
3. 10 Outboard engine importers

The next question will be how many boats do they sell per year??

Hols going GREAT!! Weather C.R.A.P. though so Joanna is complaining for not been able to take the boat out. HOPEFULLY, weather will improve by Wed and we will be out and about.
There is an EU summit in Greece (being the president of the EU for this term unfortunately) and the idiots are blocking all the main roads that leading into Athens from Teusday to Thursday 06am to 10pm cause they are affraid that someone might try to blow up a puppet called Brair. Do you know the guy?? He's got biug ears and monlkey like looking face.

Any way appart from that 'little ' inconvenience everything else is GREAT!!
