It wasn't for the benefit of you, but anyone else looking at this thread.

I'm going to guess that there aren't many people on the forum that has exerience of RIBs from this company.

Are you interested because you need a commercial RIB or just pleasure?

They had a boat reviewed in a recent RIB magazine; got a good review as I recall. I think John also said they were at RIBEX this weekend - so if you can get over to the island tomorrow you can probably try one yourself.
