Interesting!

Donfield to Chesterfield is not a big move though. Hmm.

Edit: Just seen too that Dave Rose has become Darren Brown.

Looks like Skua ribs have taken them over.

I had heard that they went bust 10 days ago and that Skua had brought them out from one source but had heard nothing else then I saw the detail change.
It will be a shame if it is the case as Dave Rose has done a lot with Ribquest.

yes the jungle drums where banging last week in the boating world,
as you say its a shame, Dave Rose had put a lot into it and was turning out nice ribs...just at the wrong time with the economy...... Im sure we will get the full story soon

It will be a real pity if true. Dave helped me out a couple of times with some damage work on my Cobra - great standard of workmanship and someone passionate about his product / quality.
Hope he and his guys are ok

This is sad news-
really good people with a fantastic product-a cut above the competition in my opinion...
What really happened?
