Says the bloke with the tractor cab cabin

I did see a new Ribquest last year just north of Ullapool, I would think just under 6 m with twin etecs and black tubes and I'll put my head up to say that the finish looked very good, shame the bloke had run over some concrete and punctured the trailer tyre

re 9 mts ribquest

hi
i object to chris ,s comments

dave at ribquest did not ask me to reply to this forum

if u look he does have a trade membership himself

every body thinks there rib is the best and everbody has different views this web site is for helpfull/ usefull info not getting at each other??


i haver had humber, trimlet/ avon,/northcraft/ tornado/ and have had ribs boats for over 30 years,
all different its up to you to make a informed choice.
As a diver humber/tornado/northcraft are good but i have a avon now and its also good, comments should only be by member,s who have owned the make in question its difficult to comment on a rib manifactura boat u have not experienced????

this thred is getting silly now

thanks
steve

I wouldn't worry either, but it's unfortunate for Ribquest that the brand is getting rave reviews from an end user who clearly has little experience of other craft to compare against - hardly an informed opinion!

But you have not owned a Ribquest

This has nothing to do with how good the boats are. I am sure they are excellent judging by all the feedback and if I sell my Osprey to upgrade then Ribquest along with Ribcraft, Humber & Redbay would all be on the list of Ribs to try before I ordered my new Osprey 7.5

This is about the copying of other peoples products and then trying to claim it is not a copy and the way in which Ribquest have thrust themselves into this forum in a rather Excaliburesque way

A good review from ANY owner is better than a bad one, so not that unfortunate.

God help any owner who posts pics/info on here that could be contrued as showcasing the brand of rib that they own - for that will surely bring down the fire.

If they can't rubbish the rib, they'll rubbish the Poster...

Surely it's about what's going on in your head at the time?
