Although further to this rumour has it that Paul Lemmer 'sold' them to quite a few people before he folded BWM? That's just what someone told me!

If anyone can confirm or deny this i'm listening!

As far as I know there were several sets of BWM moulds around from the various incarnations of BWM. I believe some now in Poland for example! The shame of it is that the hulls are pretty good designs but inevitably the fact that a number of people are/have supplied them over the years tends to put people off buying them.

Pro-Sport

Pro-Sport Ribs wre started in 1999 when we brought all the moulds etc from the Yorkshire RIB center or TEMPTRESS RIBS.

We decided not to buy the name as the chap who ran the company got into some very bad money problems in the marine world? so we decided to start from scratch.

all the hulls are proven RIB hulls and we have changed them slightly to give them more modern styles. all our ribs are built to owners spec and are excellent value for money all our prices are fully fitted and we have no hidden extras.
We have no sales reps you speak direct to the people that mix the gel and lay the matting?

When all the manufacturers started in the early days i think there was al ot of copying and altering going on????

the BWM rapier was flopped of the bottom of a Revenger etc....

We look forward to answering any questions and would be more than happy to arrange a demo in one of RIBs

Kind Regards
