I was there in October. Small operation - but they know how to make boats. The hypalon impression fabric is lovely jubbly. Not cheap boats though - but then this is top-end stuff.

I bought the Ribcraft. Don't get her until July 9th. Also considered a Humber Ocean Pro (2.0m beam), but storage, and the fact I'd already sourced an engine were key factors in my decision. The Ribquest 4.8m is a heavy boat. Definately commercial specification. Price was also against me - and I didn't want to compromise on the seating and console layout based on my budget.

Sorry Spartacus, I should have used the quotes to show that I was "talking" to Blackstorm.

Blackstorm, where are those pics from Ribquest?

We RIBnetters should post lots of pics from Factory Visits
