Ribtec

Apologies if this has been discussed before but can anyone tell me what happened to Ribtec? Had one years ago and although basic, it was an excellent boat. Or are they still being made?!

They were bought by Ribeye who ran the Ribtec brand separately for a while but it seems to have been quietly discontinued now.

Thanks. Anyone happen to know what happened to all their old non hull moulds (consoles, wheelhouses etc)? Spoke to Ribeye and they did not inherit them when they took over. Just wondering if they were destroyed or still lurking somewhere.

If I remember correctly it was Trio Mouldings who did the GRP work for Ribtec, so the mounds may have gone with them. I might be wrong though, as it was a long time ago. Even if I'm right it's unlikely to be helpful as Trio ceased trading a few years ago.
