I hear what you say.
But seriously now, you have to agree with me that not all boat or RIB manufactures are as bad.
The boat you show in the photo is filled with polyurethane (did I spelled it right?? ). Looks like it has a double keel (like a cat).
I do not think that it could be a Falcon since Falcon do not manufacture cats (they did very long time ago but not now) and do not make RIBs with yellow colour hulls either (look @ the falcon site if you like).
If it was a monohull I think that it may had been a GEMINI?? But then again I had a GEMINI for many years. Been everywhere in any type of weather (on my own and my family) and the boat was brilliant!!
In so often one boat may come out of production and be a badly made boat. This is life (no's perfect!!) and no one will lose any sleap over that.
I only do what I do because I like ie and ONLY for fun (wining is not my main concern and if it comes is an added bonus) and if I even manage to finish (even last) at least I can say that I've done that, had a good time and enjoyed it
Life is too short for getting all heated up about trevia!!
By the way good luck with the race!! and have a Merry Christmas

Confused!

Manos,
I think we may be talking/writing at crossed purposes, I would suggest you read my last post again! the photo I posted is a bath tub stuck in the sad remains of an unknown hull, just for a laugh! I was not suggesting it was a falcon!

To Splodge

Tell me how your going to beat everybody in your next racing season and what is the secret ingrediant.

Im think its great the way you just blow away the competion like that?

Im staggered,you obviously must know something,Go on Share your secrets,Come on give us all an education on how its done and a few little tips.

We try and share all our ideas in a resonable way and then come to our own conclusions.

Have you ever come second,if so how did that happen, and whos foult was it?.

Cheers Crazyhorse

Just for the record!

Just for the record, the fab picture at the start of this thread was infact taken by a friend whilst on holls in oz, he saw it on a beach and thought it would be a usefull bit of fun! mind you, with some of the quality prep I've seen around the racing circuit it may have come better than last if it were raced!


PS. just noticed the rather interesting use of the word "blow" buy Mr Crazyhorse! not unlike some newer H & R chaps on the forum I think the net is closing in!
