why dont you go and look at ribquest at the ribx show i,m sure they would be more then happy to talk to you about this.
i haven't said anything about console's, and as it happens i have been on a ribquest and i haven't knocked it in these posts, it does make a difference how many boats you've experienced, how can you make a comparision if you have only been on a few boats, you might think your boat is good but how would you know

Bit touchy.
As Biffer has already said he wasn't having ago, has adimitted his console looks similar to Scorpions but is different.

Obviously the more Ribquests you've owned the better you are to comment. Regards your previous RIBs it would would give everyone something to compare the Ribquest agianst.

I am "on" my second Ribeye and, while I have no experience of different craft (other than my luxurious Sunsqueeker), I can confirm that they are a serious sea-boat. I say this in the full knowledge that while the various DIY ribsters and other self appointed "cognoscenti" on here will raise a full throated howl of scorn, my opinion is supported by several rib(eye) dealers of my unctuous acquaintance. I fully support the supporter in his brave and loyal stance vis a vis a fine brand and feel you should all fully engage in a productive bout of internecine warfare.

Sorry new job has been distracting me from my role as RIBnet pedant.
Gents, Up to now I thought it best to stay away from the forum as it seems to generate a lot of fuss. I think its only fair to Jon (Ribmech) at this point if I take the plunge.

I am happy to answer questions and I will take on board your views. We will hopefully !!have 3 boats at Ribex if we can complete them in time, A 6.3m, 7.8m and a 10m. You will be able to have a good look at the boats and we will be doing demo runs. People can then make there own minds up.
