Is this Barry's old rib. He built a 9m one with twin inboards about 93/94 time. Towed it down from Liverpool to Southampton behind a Rangerover including up Birdlip hill. We thought he was barking at the time. Sadly there was an engine problem so didn't see it out on the water. Deffinately the right colours for it.

Think Barry has moved out of the industry but Pressman may know more. Certainly several boats have been built recently from the moulds after an absence of 10 years.

This might be worth a read,

Why do the tubes look like that???

It almost as if somebody has put "over tubes" on them
