Perhaps it's like BMW, all the new designs look weird, then you realise there is method in the madness and substance to the changes, then a couple of years on the design mellows as others follow.

Or I'm talking gibberish and the hull is not an improvement. I have no experience of either!!!!

They are beautiful boats however.
Did you beat the Goldfish 36 in RB08?

Overall no , but in a few legs, yes, and had a good race with them round Dover. They overtook us in the calm and then made a mistake by taking an inside line to avoid some rough water. We carried on and they couldn't catch us up.

In the calm water they are very fast but can't do the same speed in the rough as the boat I was in.

The Goldfish boats are, imo, the best quality, mass built, built RIB on the market and that is by some way.

Enjoy your boat.

Nice Mark!
What type of boat did you race in? Any images or videos?

How cool it would be to be part of a crew on a RB race... *sigh*

Don't think about it - just do it! We did RB08 in the same boat you have and it was great.
