Falcon 700rsr

i have a falcon 700 rsr and i am sick of people saying its a crap boat, it is an amazing boat it handles really well and can reach speeds around 58 mph with a 150 mercury optimax. i cant see what you people dont like about it you say it leans to the left when going around 35-40knts, when that happens i trim the engine up and it levels itself out and gives higher speed. Please hit me with what you dont like about it i would love to know.

This saturday i am going out for the whole day so i shall get some smaller resulotion pics which should fit on here,

Don't get too wound up about what other people think about your RIB.

My boat would have broken up and sunk years ago if some of the stuff written about was true.

If you like you Falcon that's all that really matters surely.

So apart from a thread where the last post was over a year ago, where else are people saying that your boat is crap? Anything recent to provoke this outburst, or are you just looking for an argument for the sake of it?

We had one once - was a bit light and the build was questionable (bits fell off very quickly). However, value for money... with 2 x 90hp fitted and extras added it came in at under 11k. I think they have caught on to European pricing now and the rebranded ones for sale in the UK are up there now. It did drive ok though (although tended to slam quite hard).
