That's mad!

Those wheels must have a hugely adverse effect when using it in "boat" mode.

They fold up and out of the way, having no effect on the hull shape when in the water.

Send a message via MSN to MeMe
I posted a thread.........

.........on the Rib with wheels a year or so back. I also contacted them directly, they are based in Oz if I recall correctly. Anyway, they gave me and Ex-Works price of $32,000. I also asked about a faranchise in the U.K but did not get a reply. If I won the loto, I'd buy one just for the fun of it.
