They wouldn't dare!! The return flak would be unbearable.

I have no personal gripe with Ribeyes at all, perfect for the job for which they are built. I'm starting to wonder about the humourless bunch of farts that own them though. Chill out guys and have a pop at Solents or something. It's like a bit of changing room banter, if you've ever played any sport.

i think you will find that the high weight is when they include the average scorp owners wallet. If one of us normal ribbers was on the boat the all up weight would be far less i would imagine!

Yes, we did use Scorpion two seasons ago, but we had so many problems with the Scorpion that we had to sell it within the first year. We had absolutely every screw coming out, the seat-bars broke, the entire hull full of water, the suport on the transom holding the tube broke which again punctured the tube, the gear/gass-throttle loosned, the bilgepump loosned, the batteries loosend and jumped around in the console, the Seastar tiebar was not mounted horisontaly and caused the stearing to break, this was never taken care off by Scorpion, even after 10 mails etc etc. Grahan Jelly sais we drive the boat to hard. That is thrue, but the boat was built as a searaftingboat by Scorpion and they thereby knew what it was ment and built for. The Scorp was also causing us problems in sharp high speed turns. Once we did a sharp turn with customers, the boat suddenly grabbed and twisted the other way and threw 11 people over board. Causing one broken finger and some camers to break. What we do is that we absuse our boats, and normal people will never experience this and the Scorps will work just fine. We are now using Revengers only and have no problems with them. They don`t break and we can do the sharper turns without juming sideways. A freind bought a Revenger 29 more than three years ago and used it for searafting without any problems. Since July 2005, we have bought three Revengeres, 27, 29 and 34, from them and asked for quotes for two more.

ok ok ok my comment about the weight of a scorp being a wallet or an ego were indeed incorrect, a scorp weighs so much due to the big willies in them!....or words to that effect

glad thats all cleared up satisfactorily.....cool eh ribeyers

Alice, that photo from the christmas doo was scarey, i looked like a right fat Ba$taD, on a diet now and the only chips are on my shoulder!! I am sure some irish guy doctored it ...honest

I hope all you scorpers are at the ribex, would be good to meet up
