No idea about the racing bit, but when I asked Humber about my dinosaur they told me it was their original rib design which evolved into the Attaque...... (I think the difference was a thicker transom for bigger engines - 125Kg instead of the 110 mine's rated for. the O- pro is rated something like 170Kg to handle 4- stroke 90s)

- Granted with a lighter version of the hull and a slimmer leg than today's engines. I will echo matt in that it eats rough water like a snack. I can stay sat down in conditions where in my old SR I'd have been wearing a gum shield & feathering the throttle......
If you are based in Manchester, Hull isn't toooo far a distance - I'm sure if you are threatening to buy a hull off them they'd give you a test run in both?
