That is the second time this week that I have heard of a Ferryman Rib. The first time was in the pub last week. I was informed that the ferryman hull and the red bay hulls were similar in design.

Anyone who suggests any commonality (other than the above) is talking bollocks (although they shared a steel supplier for a while).
However, I've heard that there may be more than a passing resemblance between a Ferryman hull and a Parker hull...
