They seem to ride with a high bow which should mean a dry ride (as some people have suggested)
Hi Zippy

I am the sole importer of Stingher for the UK, based as you probably have gathered by now at the Dry Stack in Southampton.

I am not replying to give the boats a big sales pitch as the only true way of finding out what a Rib is like is to try it. However it seems that the Stingher range are often thought to only offer a leaning helm seat, which is untrue.

That is the standard seat from the factory, which is supplied as a GRP pod which is bolted and sikkaflexed into place.

However we can and have fitted a multitude of seats to our range of Ribs. On the 800Gt you could have jockey seats, either single or double, drop out bolster seats, electric bolster seats, a drop out seat with forward upper support (see www.bolsters.com PH2 2 man seats) and also shock mitigation seats such as Ullmans.

So as you can see you only have to ask. Also if you had a certain type of seat in mind then tell me your requirements and we will try to source it for you.

If you would like to try the Stingher 800GT then please call me, I promise it will not disappoint.

Thanks Ed,

Your honesty is appreciated and i am talking with you on e mail about the one mentioned in this thread.

By the same token, i dont want to be seen as a joy rider. i want to get my requirements sorted first before we go down the road of requesting sea trials and putting people out! I appreciate there is a cost associated with it and i am sure there is nothing more frustrating than "buyers" who are out for a quick trip on a boat!!

As mentioned, we are looking at a few styles of boats at the moment and suspect if we can get to ribex and make outselves known as serious buyers, it would be the best time to compare like with like!

it appears the decision has been made now that we will be having a boat this year rather than next as originally planned. in the past i have been guilty of buying and selling on impulese which is something i want to try and avoid this time!!

Cheers
Howard.
