FI I am not having a pop at Manos I like the guy! It's just that I think the value for money offered by some of the SA manufacturers is achieved by lower quality. but I am only speaking as Joe Punter I am just a guy that buys Ribs occasionaly and have a few ideas on what I am looking for.

FI you ever are taking your fast rib out and need some ballast give me a shout. Same goes for you big boys out there with your power boats. I don't frighten easily but you can try if you want

Manos I must take issue with you on your comments about inferior and rubbish. let me give you an example that proves the important difference between the words

I am by no means RUBBISH at drinking and telling Jokes! But having spent a Saturday afternoon in the pub with Whiteshoes I realised I was INFERIOR at both those essential boat skills to him. It's no problem I'll keep practicing till I get it right.

cheers
Stuart

Stuart I actually agree with you and know people who had imported Ribs into the country and have now stopped but if ya only got a small budget its better than nothing! The problem comes when you see some boats from s...... at the same price or more than UK boats! Luckily we all have a brain and an option to choose what we like! it's a free country thank god!!! nite!

Having just seen the photos in the gallery i can see why you would think that. there is an old saying PAY PEANUTS, GET MONKEYS. No political pun intended.
