That's a good one . Might be that they make good RIB's but not sure if their PR
department is up to date...Many better ways this issue could have been addressed.

No smiley but this will do:

To revive an old thread by threatening legal action is a very interesting marketing tactic! If the new owners of the company wanted to address the negative comments they should have posted with how they are different from the previous owners, steps they have taken to address the transom issue and affirm their commitment to customer service. Hassling the admin of the forum does not seem like a very intelligent choice as it does not inspire much trust or faith.

Nice to see that while Ribnet has chosen to edit some of the more emotional statements the thread and the factual statements regarding this boat have not been edited or deleted. One more reason Ribnet is the forum of choice!

Ribnet features well in search engines... I imagine Northcraft have some SEO going on as part of marketing / relaunch etc and this thread featured rather high on googles list.

Right now google "northcraft ribs" and its No 5 on the list

Surely when they bought in they did so on a warts and all basis, so shouldn't be able to alter the course of history!
