...... Did they leave the bung out? Only joking! Not funny turning a rib over at speeds of at least 88mph (tongue in cheek) or was that Mike & Jackie Hunt's speed?

They look like the same hulls to me. Is that significant?

Thought you men know ya RHIBS or is it just ya 'RIBS'? The two Revenger Hulls are not both 29ft Hulls - One is a 29ft with twin Merc 200XS (F1) and the other is a 27ft hull with a single Merc 200 XS (F2)

Shape up lads!!!!!!!!

Fiona P,

I get the impression from your recent posts that you feel Revengers are inferior to a certain other make of rhib.

I also notice that you haven't posted any photo's of the other two boats that went over, could this be because one of them is one of your fine products, and the other is a boat that uses the same hull as yours.

Just an observation on my part, wondered what your thoughts were on the matter. If and when you reply, perhaps you would also like to explain which manufacturers won the RHIB championships last season, together with which RHIBS hold the outright speed records?

Regards

Barry

Did no one stop to give them a hand to turn them the right way up ?

Wasn't like that in my day, when rib racing was really tough.
