I agree totally with you analogy to buying a car. The price of the Ballistic ribs does put them into the Lexus bracket so I would expect Lexus service. This is definitetly a manufacturing fault and Lexus would have recalled all cars and fixed the problem as soon as they knew about it. This pink foam must exist in all Ballistics, it is just that mine is one of the first.

So we can live in hope that JBT have a change of heart and my rib will act as a good form of advertising for them when potencial customers see it tied up around the solent. As it is it will surely put customers off as they would like their investment to hold its value

Hi Neil, thanks for comments on boat. Sarah G, your heart and head looks like they are in the right place and I applaud you for your bravery as in sticking your head in a vice. Riva takes a pasting here every so often, I think he enjoys the attention, after all its worse to be forgot. Anyway I am sure he means well, dont know the guy but he has balls for sticking his head up in a Turkey Shoot (though I am sure he is no Turkey). How come we do not hear from Jason or John or Louise???? Anyway I am sure it will all sort itself out.
My Ballistic looks awesome, super A Frame and Chunky everything, nice boat JBT. Neil, I sugest that you check our a few Upholstery (hope spelt ok) places and get prices for redoing it. Obviously JBT cannot or Will not do it for less and until you get a few quotes for a few hundred which is all I am sure it costs. In any event I have to tell you that the Ballistic looks awesome a serious effin boat.

I will post some pics as soon as I know how.....

How long is this generous offer to supply me a new set of seats open till. I may have to spend the summer saving up so may be able to do a deal at the end of the season.

Let me know.

Thanks

Neil

Sorry mate, I have been away to Ireland for the weekend and only got back this morning.

I would like to try and get the stain removed first with Potassium hydroxide as suggested in your chemical analysis. If I can't remove it I will look at the replacement option.

Is that OK?

Thanks

Neil

I see replacement as a final solution if I cannot find any other way of sorting out this problem. The report shown by RIVA contained some interesting information stating that the stain was reduced by Potassium Hydroxide. So I think it would be wise to follow this advice before deciding if to replace.

I hope you agree!

Neil

Sorry no
you buy a boat out of warrantee privately in your words
"to good a bargain to miss"

Was it "sold as seen" if not did you go back to the private seller? and if it was did you not see it?

When things don't work out you ask for help great
Then you're offered a permanent solution for less than 10% of your saving on the asking price of the second hand out of warrantee bargain rib, but no you want that as an open ended offer in case you can't fix it on the cheap

So this has now gone on for over a month when you could of had a fix and been on your way with a very nice rib at a great price including the 10% which I think is a fair risk for buying in the private market place

PS What is the warrantee on commercially used Etecs I assume you checked
