Nice rib. Looks like the Falcon or am I wrong ?
Wish you calm seas.

Looks great, Rene. Console looks very "Ballistic" styled.

Thanks ..

It's not a Falcon, but I agree with you it looks like it, but there are some minor differences. It's a CAPE, and it's built in SA.

The quality is not like the Osprey, but I'm going to try it out.
I will bring it to Isle of Wright so anyone interested can try it out.

Nick
No it's not....
But it's longer, so this way it's more calm i high seas, but taking the waves sideways makes it a bit more unstable than the Viper, this is because it's riding higher in the water. (nothing beets the Viper)

Richard
The console looks like the balistic, because it is one
The build quality of this one is better, because it's thicker, the fiberglass is about 12 mm thick (this also makes it heavier), but this way you don't need the reinforcment inside the console. I don't know if there is any difference, but this is what I have been told.

I have only been out for about 2 hours, so I don't know much about the boat yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing you all on Isle of Wright.

Rene
