Can't really tell from piccies which one has the deeper V, both look pretty similar. What is apparent though, the F-rib has hard chines, while the Kairos hull has none. With similar V's the F- rib should have significantly more bite in the turns.
What sort of price is the Kairos anyway?

IMHO, buy from a dealer who will honor/honour the warranty. I've seen a little of the Egyptian boat building "industry" and I'd sooner put to sea in a cattle trough...

It's the best Lon you can get. Lon comes in several grades, Superlon, Megalon & Hyperlon.

Thanks for clarifying. I was concerned that Lon came from China.
