So does that mean that allegedly a LEEWAY is the best of both worlds

Na, the Leewipe is the worst of everything, as he added some special curves and hooks to the Phantom hull, totaly destroying the breed, then commited a crime worse than murder, by sawing the topsides off and fitting arm-bands.

Anyway, I don't wanna talk about that idiot.

maybe we should all buy Leeway ribs , reading between the lines it has the best of both worlds ,

Al last som pics of The leviathan , very fast , very fast , classy , flash. All the things that turn you boys on .
Its even got yellow windows so the world always looks bright .Or is it so you can't get recognised if you upset someone .
And its so safe you don't even need a lifejacket .
Just how you could actually use it as a practical boat beats me , looks like that strern could be flooded by the wash from yer average gin palace if you stopped anywhere no wonder it don't go far.
what do you do after you have taken a few fast runs up and down to impress everyone .

i think the leeway is the best of both as well

and now with the 8.3m which is supposedly a phantom 25 you can get the best of both but bigger

Depends if I can be bovvered.

But, I have a 250 mile range, a two berth cabin, central heating, mains inverter power for the kettle (most important bit of kit on board)

As long as it aint raining (hate that) I can be in Weymouth from Southampton in an hour, with ease (unless it's blowing a gale, then, I'd be at home like you lot of dreamers, except unlike the 'Bowie brigade' I admit it)

Then of course, with the sun sinking on the horizon, I can polish it if I wish. (that was for tubby Jono)

So C'mon, you started the 'whats the point of it' thing, what can you do with your 4 metre dinghy once you've got soaked to the skin crossing southampton water at 20knts trying desparately to stay in the thing in an a F2??...oh yeah, you can get just as soaked and desparate coming back again....most versatile craft you have there.
