    It's not just Ribcraft.
    Are there any rib manufacturers who can achieve agreed delivery dates at the moment?
    It may be a good sign that rib's are becoming more popular than ever!

    Mine was ready bang on time, although they did have to change the engine from a 135 Optimax to a 150 Optimax to accomplish this (free of charge!!).

    Sorry I've just made things worse now haven't I
    If In Doubt, Go Flat Out!!

    Mine was on agreed date as well, but they seem to be struggling now to meet their commitments.
    A mate also had his engine upgraded to meet delivery schedule of his rib. Maybe it's not the boat builders who are late but their suppliers. I have spoken to a few lately and they are all blaming various component suppliers for delays.

    That sounds horrendous. I have learnt that next time I order a new boat I will have penalty clauses in the contract. If the boat builder doesn't like this he wont sign the document and wont get an order.

    Gp back to them and providing you have a written document from them you may be able to take legal action for costs i.e. 5K berthing fees. Just a suggestion.
