Ribeye may sell Pascoe RIBs, but I don't think that they make them. I know that both companies were licensed to build different variants of RIB on the Ocke Mannefelt hull, and I think that's where the connection is.

Probably best to ask Ribeye or Pascoe for the definitive answer though.

well if Mark Pascoe was proud enough to put his name down the side of it - I think that says it all.

snore snore

we all love our RIBS even BogMonster ! (well maybe not)

and thats what makes it such an emotive subject we all think that we have have made the best choice within in our own budget, space and running cost constraints avalibility etc

yes if we all had the money we would be in the best we could buy Aka Nauti bouy (brill boat and dead jealous one day maybe)

but cars and boats there the same they mean one thing for one person and another to the next man/woman

so buy your ribeye buy your scorpion,osprey,zodiac,avon etc

but make sure you enjoy it to the max

Andy

Some of the early South African Ribeyes definitely had quality problems, and although these appear to have been resolved the reputation seems to have stuck.

Having spent the day with AndyB007 on his Ribeye 650 Sport a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd just throw in my thoughts here.

I didn't set out looking to find problems with the boat, but having seen how well RIBs can be made I tend to be naturally critical when things aren't up to scratch.

First impressions were good. The tubes looked good, with no lumps and bulges around the baffle seams; the internal deck moulding with teak-alike finish was smart; the general fitout was well done. The overall finish is way superior to some of the established UK manufacturers.

Under way the boat felt solid, with none of the squeaks or rattles that I've come across on some of the competition. The sea conditions weren't exactly testing, but hammering across ferry wakes was no problem and the boat didn't slam.

On this particular boat the seats could do with some more thought though. The jockey pods are so close together that it is almost impossible for two people to stand side by side, as there isn't enough space for their "inside" feet. This, to me, is pretty fundamental but should be relatively easy to sort out.

All in all I was pleasantly surprised. This style of RIB isn't going to appeal to everyone, but that doesn't mean that it's a bad RIB.

Thanks Andy!

John

You're right - two big blokes like you and me find it a struggle!! The jockey pods are only clamped down onto the floor tracking so quite easy to adjust.

The one problem you didn't mention - the CD player skips above a Force 3!! Overcome by use of a VHF transmitter (legal? who knows ...) and iPod.
