in the name of pride! or money?

i did not say the word CRAP you did. i said " not always true" i will note sit here and bring down british builders.but when i want a repair done as i have done in the past after i managed to break my first rib the next mistake i made was to have the repair done by its builder! i was lucky i sold it on to a party that told me it would only get light use from there on as it was about to break again! 40 hours later. i am only looking at an alternative to the common and save some money, anything wrong with that?after all we use their gas in our homes, i hope it heats your home ok as imine is just fine.

3. i was told today that i shall have more info by next week as it is their christmas this sunday so their sales staff had already stopped for their hols today.
4. but what i want to know is what has revenger got to do with all of this? as it is a revenger boat they show on their site.
Our economy is entirely different to theirs!

And if you like Russian engines just look out for the nails where there should be bolts!!!

you should nt pay UK prices unless you like giving your money away.

i dont think a rib from russia that you cant find on the internet or know anything about only that they look like a revenger is exactly the answer, do you?

30 years after the Russians got into space we were STILL having to replace the pistons in their engines because they weren't round.


I didn't realise that £10k was hull only though.

I would rather pay more for a RIB that has been built in the UK or a make, that is built abroad, which has a good dealer network. I'm not saying british is best, but I would never fully trust a cheap boat from a little known russian boat builder.

Tango1, I don't understand why you can't post the url?

It just makes me suspicious, I recently read about a scam, where a fraudster claims he has found a product in a foreign country at a huge discount to the uk. He wants to place a large order, and asks people if they want to invest aswell. However the fraudster claims only he is in contact with the company because he is worried that the company will raise their price due to increased interest. Of course he takes keeps the money, and the foreign company never existed.

Just a question??? Can you tell me is it ce mark as I would be interested

The only problem you will have is paper work and shipping cost!! My guess would be 6 months for the paper work and £4000 + vat minimum shipping plus duty

Itís a long way away and not really a big exporting country so not that many ships to put it on

But still of interest
