Codders: he said low cost. We used to make bike frames out of that, wall thickness of tube was only 1mm. You could pick up the frame with your litle finger. Retail price was $5000.00

Cod doesn't care about cost, when you can "Doddle" about in a Landie what does money/cost matter? Can you "doddle" in the rib? And if you do, is it dirty?

I think you would be made cutting holes in your floor as it will weaken it!
I stick my 3.8m Bombardier Airotec on the roof of my car on my own no problem! Let it on the car roof all week when not using it last year in Jersey!
Just wheel it up to the back of the car, lift the bow up & over on th the car roof with a blanket to protect it & lash it down!
Works a treat with the transom wheels.

Cod, we are just a poorly spoken bunch of rampaging imperialistic (who'd we learn that from?) colonialists out of control (see Iraq, Afghanistan) who managed to drag you Brits into three of our Wars (Iraq One, Iraq two, Afghanistan) (what the hell YOU got us into WW2), to top it off we don't have enough ribs over here and we think Zodiac builds the greatest ribs/sibs on the planet!
You expect proper English from this lot? Good luck... You're lucky we don't invade another country or two, YOU might get called up for military service...

I wish!!!

My girlfriends brother has just got back from Afghanistan - he's in the Royal Marines - he was injured when the armoured truck he was in rolled down an embankment - luckily only a broken arm. He did mention he wished I had been out there with my Land Rover instead - the army drivers are more scary than the Taliban!!!

The carbon fiber set up would probably cost me more than the boat. Well at least at the cost of carbon fiber at my local hobby shop.
