I had cracks appear in a new rib of mine some years back, though it never flexed as much as your photos suggest. However, I took it back to the manufacturer who made some lame excuse about his laminator leaving out some woven roving. At the end of the day they built me a new hull and transferred tubes, engine etc across. A lot of grief for me and them but a good outcome. I think I was very lucky though as the company folded shortly afterwards.

Have you had any past dealings with BH what was negative about the company ? In fact have any forum members got any feedback on this company good or bad . It would be very good ammo for "hadd" to fire at BH if needed and also for me and other seapro owners if we develop any hull problems in the future . I have only known BH from buying my rib off him and feed back from people who know him through engine servicing and repairs have told me BH is okay so some honest and accurate feedback of any problems with BH would be very welcome .

Many thanks ,

kerny .

I have had no flexing problems with mine and it seems to sit on the roller coaster trailer correctly .I will post some pics of the set up in the next few days if this will help . I do not know who the other two seapro owners are .....

If this boat were mine I would

1.Get it surveyed,provided the surveyor thinks it's as crap as we all do then;-

2.Send a 'notice of intent' letter by recorded delivery with a copy of the survey
stating exactly what you want ie,refund or the boat fixed (I'd favour a refund) the boat seems not to be of merchantable quality or fit for the purpose intended. Your contract is with the dealer not the manufacturer.

3.Money claim online small claims summons or go and see a solicitor

Don't hang about in case they wind the company up on you.
Really go for it,the customer thats a bloody nuisance always gets sorted first.

weight distribution

Folks this is an interesting read and can anyone give an idea of the weight distribution e.g. how much should be on the keel rollers?


Cheers
David

The weight should be supported by keel rollers, the others guide/hold it in place.

bh marine have been goin for 30 yrs and have a very good rep, but his son seems to run the company now, which i think has lost its tread. i known bh for a long time dealing with him for club diving boats, engines etc i,m sure (with arm up his back) he will sort your boat out, the trailer needs to be a bunk type hope you get a result neal
