Looking at purchasing a rib a few years ago on the south coast, local boat dealer suggested I kept away from a 'particular' brand, poorly splashed and if you looked closely down the hull the chines weren't straight..............

Thank you for all the interest in my wanted add and for the Private messages.

kb-boatpark.co.uk have a fantastic looking one up for sale, but unfortunately not quite the colours I had in mind.

any other leads to finding a leeway 6.3m mk2 will be greatly appreciated

I helped to cut a hatch in the deck of his 2008 leeway and the hull is so strong and well made.
This is the deck of a Leeway rib after a few years' use.

I know where there is one but I doubt you will be greatly received.

can you send me pictures of the rib without the deck in as i don't believe that is from a leeway.

leeway decks are pasted to internal frames and glassed on underside that shows neither of these traits.

No, I can't. It was a repair I did a number of years ago with the original owner of the boat so I'm sure of it's heritage.
