RIBase
I wonder how many people got their throats cut by the mafia when they arrived with a flatbed to collect what they'd bought?

Suspicious? Moi?

10k or 30k+ ???

1. i will post the url when i have found out what i need to from the makers. after all if they get a lot of emails from the uk about their boats ,i think the price might just go up a little and after all i took me a lot of time to just get to this stage.
2. why should we pay the british boat builders three times the money for a product that is the same and please dont say that british build is the best as we all know this is just not always true, we just like to think this to make our pride go a little further!
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.

They have probably just ripped off their design - since when have the Russians cared much for copyright?
