It sure is a pretty boat, but there is nothing new and innovative about it is there?
If you compare it to the new Bladerunner rib, I don't think it stands up..

I'm fairly sure that is a normal blade runner that had bits of tube added to allow it to race in the Egypt Rib Race.

And although it looks cool and innovative, the people who've driven them don't rate them very highly.

For some reason I can't watch more than about 40 seconds of the video but I did hear this gem.

Ok thanks Bandit, would of been nice to see your new boat in action, last years turn out was one of the best I think I had watched, with if I recall Buzzi Bullet winning overall after a tussle with the big scorpion and P1's ocean dragon that retired with broken transmission...good luck with everything and hopefully you will make the cancer research

Like the majority of ribs, it's a "hardboat hull", but the deck is true rib.

Quite right. The deck is the only bit that bears any resemblance to a RIB. The tubes certainly don't!
