>>>I remember some time ago someone wanted to do a comparison between a bombard and a FRIB. It appears to have died of death, but if anyone wishes to resurrect that challenge, then I'm up for it. Now where do I place my bet
The popularity of the Aerotec really does seem to annoy you as you keep bringing up the "didn't happen" side by side test.
Anyway it seems to have been done already as I've seen images and videos time and again of Aerotecs out in company with Fribs on Frib and other outings. Aren't the comparisons obvious when you're out?
They were to Chipko on here when he owned both and did his detailed comparison over on your forum... then sold the Frib and kept the Aerotec! As written up on post four here... F-Ribs And Sibs.Com • View topic - 'Back to Back' F-Rib375 with Aerotec 380
But if you want a simple comparison... if that's what's important to you then you'll be faster over flat water with your 15hp on the Frib than I will be using a 20hp on the Aerotec... however if you tried to fit a 375 Frib in my boot with 20hp OB and a days kit it wouldn't fit and I couldn't get it to the sea so it would be just a garden ornament for me.
Horses and courses as usual.... good there is the choice out there.
