Looks really cool, but like Matt I think it would be best seeing it being pushed in some bid seas.
Why the lights in the bow?

We are going to exhibit on Ribex this year.
We are coming with this RIB and the other type (the X-Craft 8.0 outboard) over sea
from Amsterdam. I think that is enough proof of the capabilities.
We tested in very rough waters yet but it is difficult to film it.
But we will try to film and photograph the crossing.
There will be an article about it in RIB International.
The lights in the bow are xenon docking lights.
Hope you all will come over and see us at Ribex.
We will have cold beers on the stand!!
