Nothing long enough or short enough I'm afraid - check where they measure to as well - for regular racing it's from the front of the tube to the bottom of the transom excluding the rear part of the tubes.

The new version of the KR7 is to go into production - new moulds and with soem modifications. This could make a very quick and capable ski race boat with the right lay-out / set-up.

It could be made to just measure in at below the 6.5m measurement too.

Hi John - bit early to say - hopefully there maybe one at RIBEX or around that time.

All new lay-out and new console / deck moulds.

In the meantime I have up-dated my original boat and will be testing that soon. She has the hull modifications and now a hard bow - but still the original lay-out.

That is an amazing looking boat Adam, I am in awe of pretty much all yours and cookees creations, however I am experiencing problems with the possibilty if using a rib, which I hope to overcome. But just for fun how much would one of your beautiful boats go for, as I very much doubt I'd have the budget to accomadate it, maybe some more saving to be done
