Too true...and as I've been on the receiving end of poor ethics by some of the largest and richest, I have a solid view on this.

Lee admits to using existing hard boat hulls. Id call that copying, wouldn't you?

You may call it a "rash comment" I call it a lie.

Simple solution to all this.. and this is the best I can think of... we publicly compare Lee's boat with a Phantom and see what transpires? If The Ginger One is wrong... I'm sure he'd be so relieved to see that the Phantom is not splashed/copied that he'd be in the mood to buy the drinks all night long for those in attendance, just after he'd written a long winded and grovelling apology to Lee, signed by all of us who doubt him.... what do you say? Got to be worth a drinking session on the strength of that?

Does any one have one of the BOATS in which lee has supposed to have copied his off?

How do you fit the tubes to a hull without doing some plug work to enable them to be attached?


I have been in the position of having one of my early boats copied 1 for 1. Its not a nice. The cheeky gets even tried to sell them as my boats.

Just a case of being one step ahead of the game.

as lee will tell you, you flip the boat upside down, attatch a temporary flange where you want the toobs, low topsides. mould it, hey presto a rib hull!

depends on the context. as if you get a boat wax it and make more that is a copy..

if you cut and moddify/addapt to more than 15%, in the eyes of the law that is not.

i know our rib is no copy of anything. our rib will never fit in a phantom mould and a phantom will never fit in my mould. what about paying me for my time as i am really busy. i have orders to compleate..
