So for you old timers you might remember that I rebuilt an old zodiac 7m RIB-P a few years ago. The RIB-P preceded the 733 changes and designation. I had found one reference in a magazine article talking about the Zodiac CZ7 they tried to sell. That article said they changed the strakes on the 733 (for the higher speeds of the OB version they were going to produce), added some molded features like the fuel tank cradle, and changed the tubes to the slide on style. I had always wondered what the strake changes were. Well I finally got an answer from Zodiac Milpro/Hurricane. they eliminated the lowest set of strakes on the 733. Here you can see I have three sets, I guess the 733 has two. Here is mine. Anybody know the theory behind the changes?
And here is an image I stole off the site from Ryan's latest build. Notice his isn't in a field ;-)
