Have to disagree with that Wave, I can't beleive that it does 72 knots. I had a similar boat that did just under 60 knots. They have also had a lot of probs with those boats.

Hi, Paul!
I tried to look a little at the Artic boats. I called the guy who makes them and surfed a little after articles.
1) they dont have a homepage
2) I couldnt find anything about them on the net,l how seriouse are they?

What do you know about the Articboats that we dont know.
Martin

Hi Stuart

I wasn't actually driving the boat or sitting near the console, i just asked what the speed was and that was that. I have always been impressed by this boat as I could never catch it when it was out on the water.
I have tried catching this boat several times and failed and have allways been impreseed by the way it rode the sea. I personally have found that The Bigger Ribtecs are a bit wobbly at speed.

What was your similar boat and what problems are thay having?

cheers
Stuart

It's a very clever new release of the legendary optimax engines. the technological breakthru is the saving of weight by making the engines and castings from a light but strong metal called typotanium. The output of the engine is a modest 225 hp but the engine only weighs 5kg.

Does anybody know where I can get some new fingers from cos the ones I've got are shot to bits

5kg and 225 hp! Expect they might be a bit expensive!
