Default John Broom Boats

I must be going nuts here, or I'm doing something wrong - this website is supposed to be John Broom Boats site but I can't get any response from emails at all - just comes back as not known. Telephone numbers don't match either. Does anyone know if the company is still trading, in receivership or something, Google doen't help at all - just says the site was checked on the 30th March and it was functioning OK. Maybe you've heard something through your contacts, Thanks.

I'm going to have examine myself - the penny has only just dropped, with a very load clang I hasten to add. I thought you'd lost your marbles mate talking about triggers and heads dropping off. Go on the rest of you have a good laugh, this bloody getting old cr*p is a flamin' nuisance.

Thank you anyway Russ - must be our French phone system. Will keep trying.
