Just got the Baystar kit suppied & fitted in Poole for 450.00 to my 4.8 Ribcraft, seemed like a fair price . Ribcraft wanted 650.00 when building the boat .

I don't know why the boat builders take the proverbial so much. Fair enough charge a decent amount for fitting etc but do they really need to make such a profit on every bit of equipment supplied as well? All it does is force people to go elsewhere.

I thought so too, Ribcraft only had to fit it into a empty consol without the tubes on the boat, These guy's in Poole had to remove the existing 'no feedback' teleflex completly....enlarge the boss hole & re-fit the new 'Teleflex' hydrolic system through the boat & bleed it all up.....twice the work for nearly half the money will use um again defo there number is further back on this thread 01202678085

Most times we fit original equipment for retail prices if there is enough margin in the trade / retail differance for us to fit it free of charge. We would rather our boats go out with the best equipment available, and fitted by us at the factory (where it is easier to put in at the appropriate stage of the build.)

Cool thanks for this Spike. As they are on my doorstep I will be giving them a call in the next month or two.
