Fiberglass Rigid Buoyancy Boat

Hi there All,

I was wondering if anyone had any information about a newish fiberglass rigid buoyancy boat being made in South Africa. The South African company is apparently called "Fibreglass and Marine" and they are making two models. One is a 5.4m deep V and the other is a 5.7m catermaran. The interesting thing about both these boats is that the both the hull and the tubes are made from fiberglass as a one piece boat.

If anyone has any information I would love to hear it.

Cheers,
Simon.

There's a guy with South African connections on this forum (Charles) but he's recovering from an incident at the moment. When he bounces back, I'm sure he'll love to do some research in this. A post to explain this conundrum to follow shortly.
