Who asked you TinTin?

Anyway, I've been thinking, and I reckon that in the last two years, you've done WAY more boating in hard boats than soft, and definitely at much higher speeds, and definitely far more safely. (between Nicks XS and my Phantom) ...and, you didn't get wet!!

So, the question is, why? have you crossed the line?? moved on, and up???

Well guess you cant argue about the safety bit after all 2 Phantom 28ft did do the round Britain 84 at speed, and the gale force winds around the lands end bit were hideous so they say...now I wonder how the new extended 31 would do???

Come to think about it that 31 would make a big boat with water wings attached

But what a Crime it would be!

RIBs should derive from ultra warped bottom lower speed hulls. then they'd be more like the average rib owner wants to think they are.

Scorpion do a good job of it, as do Sorcerer (at least in the design) don't try and dirty the good performance hull name that Phantom have by suggesting such vulgar projects.

The later P23 hull was designed more for that stuff, and in it's altered Phantom Evo guise, does it just fine, though still airing on the side of performance rather than slogging through 3 metre waves at 5 knts.

Yeah, and third overall, against all the huge Class one stuff. There was a rib in that race too, but it came bang last..... I just don't get it, what with the horrendous weather they had for the rib to excel in.
BTW, the only boat in the whole round britain fleet, that spat both (or any) of the occupants out during the race.......you guessed it.
I think they got good at swimming back to it lucky it had that low freeboard so they could climb back in, but then of course if it had some freeboard, they wouldn't have fallen out in the first place.
