..a stepped hull is not always the answer to speed. However, all secrets will be revealed in the summer @ COWS 2003 race

Hull Shape

It looks like the hull of a Ring Powerboat but maybe with a deeper foorfoot. Seems to be going well though.

F1 Racing

Hi Manos

Is the boat in the picture the actual boat taking part in F1 next year. If it is he's keen getting practice in allready. Mind you saying that the first race is in February at Poole. Are you taking part in that event. I will be there for that one but not racing. If your there it would be good to put a face to a name.

Julian

This boat is the same as mine.
Mine however is in blue colour with same designs, but different sponsors.
The red boat will be racing in the UK only in the summer (2-3 races only).
I will have mine (the blue boat) delivered by beg of Feb (if all's well) and possibly will take part in the 'BRASS MONKEY' race (just to test it). Otherwise will definately race it in May 2003.
When my boat is finished you will see the photoes in the forum.

At present we have a think about which category each boat will race. Nevertheless one will be in Formula 1 and the other in Formula 2. This will be decided at a later stage and before Feb 2003.

Cheers

Competition

Talking to Jim Mackintosh, BIBOA Sec t'other day he was telling me that they have something like 10 boats registered next year in F1 and 14 in F2! Of course whether all those who are registered turn up is another thing! Another interesting titbit is that a lot of hardboat racers are thinking of moving to RIBs as they are cheaper and you can still race if the weather is rough!

Tks fr the info. Spoke to Jim Mackintosh today my self. Very helpfull chap. Sounds like a VERY NICE guy. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!
From what you say the competition will be VERY STRONG in the years to come.
He also advised me that Formula 3 does not longer exists and that there is a roumor that RIB races will be upgraded and only RIBs of 10mtrs+ will be entitled to enter these races.
All remains to be seen.
