Hard nose only or tube just not attached very well ?
Well I dont think we realy have looked into things fully yet and I am still on the fence.
Ask yourselves this question.Is this bow tube fixing strong enough for the stresses, with a 5 ton offshore Cabin rib attached.
If the conclusion is it looks like a little skimpy and the flange/tube seems to have no real bow/side support or carrier for the tubes,Isnt it a little to soon to put this one to bed in favour of a hard nose only unless your selling the concept ?
Could it just be a weekness in the tube attachment to the hull design for Mikes Cabin rib,that when sorted will be fine in the future ?
Just an observation?
