Codprawn please i would like your opinion because yesterday while talking with some people they couldn't beleive WHY the english RIBS (SR9-BLADERUNNER etc) where broken!!!! I mean we hear here in Greece the English boats are this the English boats are that (cobra,scorpion,sr9-sr8) theese are the most famous in sellings) but now in Egypt those ribs took bottom!!!
Since those ribs are for the bad English seas and brake in Egypt then what is their reason? just to catch 60-70-80knots in calm lake waters??
Please with all due respect give me a reply.....
The egyptian boat is a italian capelli with yamaha 250!
For a start they are NOT English boats - they are BRITISH boats - the Cobras are made in Wales!!!
Without knowing what the conditions were like it is impossible to say. Also what broke and how? For example a hull hitting a rock at speed will break no matter what. or was it engine failiure? Give some example please!!!
