Crompton Ribs
 
Oops, Compton Marine in the Daily Mail today for all the wrong reasons. Police found large sums of cash in the owners UK home, Spanish Police looking into why all the smuggling boats are Cromptons.

I always wondered who bought 1250 hp outboard ribs. The fuel bill must be phenomenal.

Compton Marine brings a whole new meaning to the term speed boats.

Those monster RIBs on the web site did look like cartoon drug smugglers boats, but it all seemed a bit too obvious to be true!
