Must admit when Ribeye gets mentioned there is always a debate hence my usual

But like I have said before... most Ribeye owners rarely knock them. So they must have something ......

The company have been working very hard recently with some massive changes which have seen the boats we talk about arriving on the scene. Some big developments coming I think.

I have managed to bite my tongue many times when they took a "ribbing" whether deserved or not, but now I find we see remarks which can affect a business plan with sales affected without good reason, Every company has products that could be improved/changed but they have driven success and it is a shame for some to try to unintentionally hurt their progress. Not pointing a finger at anyone but it would be good to promote success and not try to damage or destroy businesses.

I too would not buy certain RIBs but I applaud the work these manufacturers do. Without choice where would we all be

Yes, As an expert, I have been praising Ribeyes on this forum for many years. It is most gratifying to see how many people have listened, taken my advice and bought them.

A particularly satisfying by product of all of this, is witnessing the shrill trilling of Ribeye criticism from our friend in the Falmouth area reducing to no more than the odd occasional muttering. Priceless...

My initial post wasn't to start yet another "Ribeye are cr#p" debate, it could have been any manufacturer. It was more with regard to the seating design and use of seat belts I was inviting discussion

As much as I like the idea of being a Lone Wolf, being a friend of your's would be a club way too lonely for even me. So let's drop the "friend" tag, eh?

Its just like 4x4's... if you haven't got an expensive LR but instead own an old Nissan... and it does the job and you are happy with it cos it doesn't "break down a lot"... and costs naff all to maintain then its your baby just as much as the rich guys more expensive unreliable car, which for him, spending money keeping it on the road is no object.

Then everyone's happy
