Dowdy, read this re. commercial posting & trade membership, although in my opinion you haven't breached any forum rules as it stands.

Here's the link since Matt seems to have omitted it,

As far as I can see I agree with Matt. The bloke hasn't even built any yet so how can he be pushing something that doesn't exist Sure he's following the "any publicity is good publicity" but so far he ain't contravened the guidelines directly.

A dowdy mentioned, I think we ribbers try to be a little more civilised than those on BM, there is no need to have a go at the bloke especially on a forum like this. By all means pay him or his business partner a visit if you feel so strongly about it, but better to leave sleeping lions lie eh?

Edit: Just seen this:

Your memory seems a bit hazy. What he said was "If you build them without specific permission from the owners it'll be a splash."

When I saw your plug in primer a few years ago Mike told me that he had splashed a Phantom and was stretching it. You can argue the toss about the origins and IP ownership of your plug, but we'll probably never know the real answer. I'm sure people will make up their own minds if they care.

Jon also asked who you would get to draw up the laminating schedule to make sure that the boats were built properly. I'm not sure if you answered that or not.

I think it's very laudable that you want to build good boats cheaply in the UK, but I'm not sure that you're going to find it easy. It's a bit academic for now though as you don't even have a mould yet. Are you planning to take pre-production orders?

Seems quite clear to me.

So what is this business he's promoting exactly? I realise there's a bloke that's setting up a company around a mould he's bought off ebay but what exactly is the company called? As far as I can see there is no specific business being promoted
