How can this be a rib without inflatable sponsons. Think it comes under the hard boat category.

It'l never catch on.
Are you sure they are not just deflated

There was a piece about it on South Today yesterday. Seems that they need a calm period to go for the record.
Perhaps you should give them a ring and say you know a couple of girls who dont care about a few waves when going around an island.

Kathleen......KATHLEEN...........now where has she gone?

You're a philosopher Mr. Halliday sir. The Forum needs lateral thinkers so keep up the good work.

When's the next Churchillian or should we all wait till Sept and have school hols?
