Ribcraft deck furniture

Have Ribcraft stated fitting Outhill consoles and seating to their "leisure" boats? http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/RFT112

They seem to be charging a lot for the trailer.? Maybe they have trouble producing enough consoles to go round. So they find it easier to buy them in.

Ribcraft make everything in house inc all the stainless work and tubes therefore I dought they would out source product, instead you would just have a longer lead wait I guess until your console or seating had been made.

..looks similar though, doesn't it? Outhill do a short screen model too..that was remarkably similar to the one fitted to my Humber..

Also, I't would be an odd situation if console production couldn't keep pace with hull construction. The console looks 'Ribcraft' to me.
