I already have a boat like that one. The boat is the recreational version which is heavier but fast. This boat has been taken through some VERY ROUGH seas during last summer (force 7+) and has jumped up and down on waves doing 40 and 50 knots at times with full load. Nothing went wrong with it. Nothing moved, nothing broke, has no cracks on the hull or the transom and the boat is still going strong!!
I recon that the racing version being constructed in the way it is will be faster than the one I have and basis the average times that I checked in F2 class last year and the comments I have heard from SAfrica when they tested the boat this one is a lot faster than all those boats that raced in F2 last year. So is fair to say that it has a chance to finish if nothing else.
But what do I know about it???
