Very nice, perfect for here, but a bit out of my price range I think!

Glass hull, tubes round the outside, engine on the back, yea we've seen it all before

Dont quiet get your point?
Unless your going out on a limb the way a boat is laid out is limited to a few options, those options will be similar on many boats, as they work.

For instance sliding windows have been used for much longer than 12 years and i'm sure whatever application you are referring too was not the first time that it was used?

I suspect the engine lid will be as big as the hole for the engine? You cant really have it any smaller can you?

As to having a steering wheel, OK it may be old school but mind control is not all that stable a method of controling the direction of a boat yet.

You are missing the point as it is not a new model. we have been making it for a few years now only not really promoting it

Are you telling me you have something better, I guess not

Kinda familiar to what????????????

IIRC, this is jwalker's RIB - built a decade ago. I bet if he was doing it again, he'd fit a tumble dryer too....
