And Richard will be one of them,

I did Dover to Calais as well earlier this year it was all over in about three hours, I was a bit dissapointed that I could see France from Dover. The slip at Dover is an absolute git you can launch at most states of the Tide but I think you would be better recovering at higher states of the tides.

You definitely need a 4 x 4 and you will have to be good at reversing your trailer to get on it

Well Steve, I've given this a lot of thought as it's obviously very important to get everything just right. So, after much deliberation... wait for it...well, first I thought the grey but then I thought that you can't beat white - it co-ordinates with everything you see...but now I think I was right first time... but then again... Could I get back to you once I've given it a bit more thought?

I was thinking that the grey was just a bit different and it matches the trim with the blue on the tubes I'll post another pic

Whats the delay with them? When I was looking at them after reading your thread they said it would be just after xmas
But liked the Avon for the last 3 years at the Boat Show, I couldnt change my mind any more.

well, somebody (charles?????) has requested a 10m cabin rib!
Jahno (in think) is being greedy and asked for 2!
Ian has got one on order
some other bloke had ordered a 7.5m in the last few days

My 6m will be from a different mould to all of those so you wudn't have thought there would be a problem, however, the reason these ribs are cheaper than most others is because Jason pays very little overheads.
He doesn't employ many staff and so im not sure how many ribs can be built at once.

Still a brill rib at a brill price so i'm settled. Flying out there on saturday to have a look.

I thought charles said he was getting something different? He hasnt said yet what he is getting mind he is selling a nice looking boat.
Your trip will be good atleast you can see the Factory and see your mould hopefully in use.
What colours are you getting

nah, i dont think it is charles at all.
I still want to know what hes planing, think he's gone off in a strop though.

Yellow and black took my fancy, but im really strechign my buget allready and the cheapest option looks most likely. Might be all the same price, if not, Good old Hypalon grey

I do liek your blue and white though..... might rethink

Factory = Farm building. Jason has a great set up with no corners cut on the quality from what I could see and my independent technical advisor was suitably impressed. However take some wellies for the visit to the works.

Ideally it would be:

Double width console
2x1 man jockey seats behind that.
2x2 man jockey seats behind them.

May not be enough room, might settle for 4x1man jockey's
