Yes, i know some people on here think he,s expensive ,but i,d rather pay a bit more & know that if something went wrong with the goods, he would put it right or replace it, like he as done with us without a fight.

When you are in the position that we were in its always the uncertainty what the outcome might be with a problem with a dealer, but luckily for us the outcome couldn't have been better. I am now getting a 5 mtr euro rib and also ordered a new tohatsu 3.5 engine as an auxiliary to be fitted on it . The hull seems to be a lot more solid than the one being replaced and the tubes are made in Germany but still pvc . Many thanks for all the comments and advice given on this forum and also a big thanks to BH Marine for the their quick and excellent response.

big concern

was the ribeye sitting on its original bramber twin axle trailer. at 43k the above comment (some boats are dearer than others) should not apply.

to be honest my hull (2007)is in exellent condition but from now on ile be keeping a eye on it.
biffer are all the ribeye boats showing the exact same problems.if this is the case i will be speaking with anne marie at ribeye, like i say at the price these boats are selling for its unacceptable build quality.

the ribeye's i've done all had stress crack's, more than just wear and tear, i had a talk with a person and he said that they have changed where they are layed up, and the earlier one's were suspect, now this is gossip and i always take this stuff on face value, my thinking behind cheaper or dearer boats is you get what you pay for in most cases, you can't build something really cheap without sacrificing something, and it won't be there profit margin
