Where are Falcon dealers?

Hi there,

i'm new to this forum. I'm trying to find out who's selling Falcon (South Africa) ribs .
Are there any dealers out in GB? Or in Skandinavia or anywhere else in Europe.

Can't find any information about that on the net.

Thanks for you support!
Marc

The domain hasn't been sold, but there appears to be a problem with the web design/hosting company parknet communications.

They have either deliberately or accidently diverted the web site to their home page.

Thought I may as well ask parknet communications to see if it was a problem their end. Apparently RIB-X haven't paid their bills.

Anyone know if they are still trading?

Rib-X

Seven,

This thread is a bit old now but I thought I should add to it.

I know the owner of Rib-X because I have bought two boats off him and I can assure you the reason the website was offline was an adminstrative error by the webhosts.

I think Rib-X's boats are excellent and they are a very friendly firm to deal with. You won't regret buying one.

Peter.
