Seriously I like the boats, they have a good external finish and have enquired about purchasig one previously. But that pic !!!!!

Hope I haven't offended you all - but you did ask to fire some questions so I did what I was told.

Oh the shame calling me a boatmadder

Now that hurts

Jakeen what (I think) people find difficult to grasp is what does it matter how it looks inside if the construction is rigid and can withstand the punishment of a race such as the Transagulhas Challenge.

It has been build to withstand South African seas that make the Channel and the Atlantic on a bad day look like milk ponds.

This and only this allone should make you realise that what the Fullers of this world say has no foundation, is unsubstantiated and is complete nonsence.

The boat is great!!

Didn't you say that there is a big difference in the hull used in the race boat and the recreation hull?

Im sure i could find it somewhere in this thread.

However, as Pieter said the red FALCON is a racing hull!! very differently built than the recreational version that I've got.
which hull are you guys talking about?

Trying to keep to the original thread, is there a UK distributor who displays/demonstrates the Falcon range?

Just searched on Google and top of the results list is Boatmad Holidays! I wonder who runs this But no site for sales of Falcon's.

Simmons - one could interpret that as good hulls for racing only
