My understanding is Hyprosport were the first, built by Eddy in Portugal and Roughneck bought some off the rights.

Okay Roughneck brought the rights to the Hydrosport moulds/tooling - now Hydrosport makes 565 (Roughneck 555) 646 (Roughneck 636) 909 (Roughneck 808) it seems to me that Hydrosport has sold all of its tooling (and rights) to Roughneck and befor they left Portugal splashes were taken and NOW we have a new Hydrosport range...doesn't sound like cricket to me???

Andy, I believe it shoud be about time you grow up now.

You are most welcome to come and see for yourself the differences between the old models and the new ones.

I can show you the new plugs and then you can see for yourself that they were made from scratch - not taken from anywhere else.

You can take measures, you can compare everything you want - and you will not find one single thing in common from the old to the new models. Not one single thing - even the steps have a completely different configuration and forward rake. The deadrise and warp in the hulls are different, the strakes position and size are different, the transom setback is different, the beam of the hulls are different, the chines are different, the keel lines are different, the bows are different - would you like me to go on with all the differences?

There is absolutely no similarities in the boats whatsoever - except them all being designed by me.

So, once again Andy - grow up and try to make your living out of your own work and not by sending shit in all directions. Believe me, you will not make any profit from that. Ever.

We owned a 2005 version of Hyrdrosport. It was a superb rib. Very smooth in the sea, and for some reason it was much faster compared to other ribs with the same engine. we were a bit overpowered (150hp) for that size of rib.

Again there were a lot of people at that time bullshi&&ing about vibration and cavitation BUT it was just gossips and rubbish.

I am very much looking forward to own another version of these ribs (if I can afford!!!) as I am 100% confident if the same guy (Eddy) is behind these ribs he knows what he is doing.

We have dealt with Eddy a number of times and have been involved in shipping several of the old 5.5 and 6.3 over to the UK. London Rib is right in the fact that the hulls have always proven to be more efficient than conventional designs and the hulls have always give a very smooth ride.

Good luck Eddy for all you are trying to do I know you work hard for it.
