BWM flooding hull

I've just spotted a BWM RIB on ebay that has a flooding hull. I thought that Avon where the only company to have done this?

The Titanic comes to mind, but it wasn't a RiB, was it?

Only time you usually see something like that is when you have twin engines and the standard trunk would go into the props. The BWM has trunks either side of it so I'm stumped!

Neither are BWMs

Anyway link to the advert JSP is talking about, seems a tad expensive to me though.

Looks a little home made on the flooding hull side and I can't see any holes in the bow, maybe there inside

Yeah, my thoughts exactly - looks suspiciously like a bit of sewer pipe and sikka., sorry, silicone mess.

That's what I thought, hence the question.

I had a BWM with a flooding hull, but it wasn't so much a designed that way as poor built that way.
