Is this Boat for night Racing???Looks like a Stealth Rocket Ship.
The looks of the boat are OK, but only thing is that it doesn't go fast though

Usually when you measure the legth of a boat (LOA) you measure the length of the hull, that is you measure it from the end of the nose to the end of transom. You include no tubes.

RIBase
For those who want to see Falcons in action................
On Sky Sports 3, on Saturday morning at 09.00 hours, they are showing sections of the Trans Aghulas Race from S.A.
Last week they showed Day 4 to Hermanus Bay and this Saturday should be the next stage. Last Saturdays program ran from 09.00 to 10.00 with ribs being shown for the last 20 mins or so.

Needless to say, I watch from the warm comfort of my bed!

Videos I need them,no Sky Sport 3 here !!!! No Fair
I pay tooooo.Need them to get customers interested.

Boat lenght,
Was hoping for another answer Manos.
I need 8 meters to be legal for the Offshore Class, 24 feet.I know here come a nose job (The Beak is born).

I like the old style Pointed Rocket Cones on the back tubes.Besides it makes the boat Look faster and they work greak for Wheelie Bars.

Boat length: I was told by an x racer that the boat may be at a disadvantage if it races against boats with longer hulls. Hence never tried it. Something to do with extra speed gained when the hull is longer (is that correct??). The beak is not the answer to this. A longer hull of this boat probably is (I think ).

I too like the old style rocket cones

Does that make keith's (the magician) boat have a LOA of 0, what with it not having a rigid hull at all? That'd be quite some magic trick.

LOA is Length Over All. Not Length minus a little bit, nor hull length.
