Thanks for the info Leeway. Please could you tell us which two hard boats you 'cut and shut'? Also, perhaps a little more detail about the tweaks? Thank you.

Leeway, my name is Louise. My partner is Richard B. This is definitely Louise posting. We do not post in each other's names (apart from a couple of accidental times when we made it clear that we had posted under the wrong user name). If you don't believe me, ask JK to run an IP search for my posts. That'll tell you where I am (Reading). Richard is working near Southampton at the moment.

You obviously don't want to give us any more details of your boat - that is your prerogative. But I think it is a shame as it might have laid this to rest. As I said before, if you have nothing to be ashamed of, why not speak up!

now the blending and they way in which these are mixed can make a variety of designs, many combinations, but is in no way a copy
It is if the bits are moulded from an existing hull (or hulls) though.

You may not consider this a splash, but I do. Some people will agree with me, some will take your view, others won't care.

Whatever anyone thinks, I would be genuinely interested to know which boats you used as donors, which sections of each you chose to use, and which innovations you added. In what ways will your RIB perform better than either of the donor boats?

John

To quote your website....

"Leeway Composites offers innovative product design in constucted plastics, taking a product from a concept, through detail design and CAD drawing to tooling, prototyping and production. A large number of projects, relying heavily on our design capabilities, have been successfully manufactured and put into production."

Innovative? Don't think cutting and shutting an existing design is particularly innovative, its been done before
