Rib refit

Hi All,

Can anyone suggest who will be really good to do some RIB refit work. I have lots of smaller and some bigger jobs to do. Some new electrics, new wear patches to the tubes (tubes themselves are perfect) perhaps a new swim ladder, new elephant trunks to be drilled and some other GRP work etc its a fairly detailed and thorough list of 20 items. I want someone who can be trusted to do a quality job but will be good value also. I have reached out to RibShop and also to Rodella Ribs. Is there anyone else you can suggest? Boat is in the Dry Stack in Southampton but I can bring it to anywhere within reason.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions

Jonathan

Henry at Marine Matters in hamble is very good, experienced a few engineers and Henry was definitely the most thorough and kept me posted throughout. He did mechanical, electrical and some stainless fabrication too, all top quality. He collected my Rib as it is dry stacked and I don't have a trailer you can also drop off waterside or by road.
