Looks like an interesting project.
Who did the structural calculations?

Adrian Thompson has designed the hull, the rib has been built out of carbon with a high density impact resistant foam. Half the reason for funds drawing short is the fact that no expense was speared on the construction and materials!

So the long and the short of it soon to be finished is a 7m rib with a 100HP Yamaha 2010 engine weighing in at 540kg. The handy thing about this is also that on the road trailer the all up weight should be less than 750KG!

There has been one other hull drawn from the mould, this had a diesel inboard added. The boat is amazing in heavy seas, better than Tornado ribs I have used in equivalent conditions.

Just thought I would share these pics with you, finished pics in a month or so!

But it does happen. Even just in error over one wave by someone experienced.

The above would need a separate thread on a different forum.

Do you have to bare a nipple and do the secret handshake to get on that forum?
