I couldn’t let this thread go by with out adding something to it myself I to wish all businesses were run along the same lines as this in all the dealings I have had with Kieran and rib-shop I cannot praise them enough helpful and honest are just some of the small things I could say about them I wish them every success in the future they deserve it

We had a tube go coming out of Poole while heading back to the Hamble on the Friday night before Bank Holiday weekend 2006. Never heard of rib-shop done some research found them booked it in on sat and it was repaired by Sun morning so we could get to the Island for the Sunday race

What more could you ask for.... Brlliant Service

Saturday I cleaned the boat with soap & water. It made no difference what soever!

Yesterday from the very first squirt with the cleaning product I could see the boats original colour! It was great. Bright orange was coming out from the dark red where the tubes were covered in grime. I scrubed quite a bit and rinsed it all off with water. I then applied the polish which made it shine as much as neoprene could possibly shine.

My boat doesn't look new by a long way, but it certainly looks a lot cleaner than it did before. I think it was a worth while investment. I've still got enough of both (cleaner & polish) to clean the boat a second time.

When I've got the time i'll put up some before & after shots

Do your before and after shots look something like the one in this thread

I'm impressed!

I think I put less energy (and kitchen scourers) into it than yourself but the photo shows pretty much the same thing. Great stuff, money well spent. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to sell thier rib as it take years off it.

Sure you didn't go out and buy a new boat?! Thats amazing!

I've always used jif cream with a scouring pad, extremely hard work but did the job eventually. Think I'll be getting me some of this stuff for next time though
