Default Bad Touch Catamaran by PIP

Does anybody have this boat here?
http://www.precision-in-perfection.co.uk/badtouch.html

Anyone have more pictures of this boat? Front, top, interior, rear, bottom view? Done up?
What size does it come in?
Can I fit a Zenoah 260 PUM into it?
How much did you pay for the hull?

I have not seen one in any forum I frequent.

You may want to do some research on PIP. I believe I heard murmers of them not delivering - certainly correct me if I am wrong - You may want to contact a local distributor.

I have a PIP Giesse cat that was purchased though Fine Designs a number of years ago. I know Chris Fine is still in business and may be able to give you pricing info etc for the cat. She is certainly a nice looking cat.

I saw a mates cat from pip it was absoluteley rubbish it came suposedly with a nice finnish and turned up with holes and when i mean holes i mean holes you could see through.His reply from them was theres nothing wrong with it a little sanding and pollishing wouldnt fix [X(] , he paid for one that was allready finnished .He paid £350 for the hull if memory serves for his dads birthday and did a thread on here about it,he asked for a refund and was refused untill he got solicitors involved.I wouldnt buy from either of those companys ,i think the fact they use two different names says it all.

I went to Chris' site and they don't show any PiP hulls. He is shown as a distributor on their site. Maybe he didn't want to sell them if they were bad.
I don't know if Chris is still running the place as I heard a while back that his brother took over. If you get in contact with Chris, don't call him. You'll spend a small fortune on long-distance calls, that boy likes to talk! [sm=lol.gif]
