There is also a Balistc 780 for sale and although it says that these RIBs took part in the transagulhas Challenge (actually one RIB with twins) it does not say what EXACTLY happned to them ......... and I know EXACTLY what happened probably this is the reason this RIB is for sale

But the F1 was with the twins. Sorry I only thought that it was only one racing for some reason. Actually I was told that it was only one racing.
I have some photos from the start of the Agulhas race of this year where all boats are there so will see better. When I get it out will post it.

Looking at those pictures you gotta admire the Falcon driver he/she definitely had some rough stuff to get through!

Brilliant pictures by the way, just makes you want to do it

Ballistic must definetely be heavier. Her props don't seam to get much air. On the other hand, Falcon can easily be airborne. I've seen that
