Me and Wilk obviously don't associate you with humour.

i think it takes a lot to do what he does with words and it takes a lot to work it out what he's saying sometimes, but some of your humour does make my head hurt

indeed - and he does it with a style and class unmatched by anyone else here (in English or Garf-speak).

RIBase
There appear to have been several misunderstandings, and so, with this happy conclusion, let me bid you all, as friends, goodnight

BVT's Delta's and MST's are fine boats but do you think they'll ever be as good as Quinquarry boats?

I see a lot of Deltas and Avons when I'm working offshore (Oil)but most of the RIBS I see when I work on Windfarms are Quinquarries.

Sonar.
re the lamination and gell coat, different layups and the skill of the craftsmen and quality of quality control do make a diffence to the GRP. Whilst gell coat can appear similar, different brands will deteriate more rapidy than others have a lok at new ribs in a boat show with a careful eye on the finish and you'll see a differnce in quality, that isn;t immediately visible. Also lift the hatxhes and inspection plates and see what it's like underneath. I believe every rib should come with a series of digi pics of it's construction which would let you know how well it's ben made

Also what happens under the GRP is important the stiffening and deck supports have to be right or else the boat won't ride right and again in a few years you might have a serious deck off problem to deal with. Also if the laminators are careless or mingy with the deck materials the you might have a duff deck after a while.

I'm not a big fan of Humbers, I don't reckon the factories attention to detail that much it's OK but it's not great and there are far too many people buying bare hulls and fitting them out for sale, which means the manufacturer has little or no control of quality, but you pays your money and you takes your choice. For similar reasons I don't like the Avpn Adventurers much

The boats that I've come across that do seem to stand the test of time (which indicates quality of construction, to me) are Revenger, Scorpion, old ribtec, Ocean, Coatline, Flatacraft, Osprey, Northcraft, Solent/Tohatsu. Avon, Delta, Halmatic and are superb craftI agree with CJl's comments but these boats are mil spec boats and as such are heavy and dearer to run I've owned several of the above makes and was very happy with the construction..

Boats I don't think age well are Tornado's, Falcon's (ribx), Ribeye, Cobra, Gemini, Balistic Prosport
Any owners of these boat wishing to organise a fatwa against me see TimW for details.


If I was looking to buy a 6.5 leisure rib it would be a Vipermax the only thing that would make me have secohd thaoghts is that would make me a member of the Osprey owners club and they are truly a scurvy lot. If the prices were reasonable I'd also give serious thought to a Scorp and in third place it would be a Solent. If it was A 7.5 or over then it woud be a Revenger, Scorp or Ribcraft. I'm far to biased to reccomend a 5.4 or a 4.7 boat
