In this particular case, the design was bought a couple of years ago from Phantom boats (who closed due in part to this kind of thing) by two guys who've continued building the boats, they invested in the design in a similar way that Steve did in the begining, now they're trying to get their investment back, whilst 'other' people are benifiting without such honesty, in some particularly offensive cases they even bragg about it, can you believe that?

Anyone with any business sense would have approached the owner of the rights to the hull and done a deal, thereby being able to use the marketing potential of the designers name. It could have been a win/win situation.

for a start they are completely different sizes. and that's just the tip of the ice berg.

buy one and you can test it for yourself, I'll even do you a discount as you are a friendly kind of guy

Leeway

You seem to be on the attack here which either means you have "splashed" as JF says or you are enjoying a big wind-up.

Can you not be bothered to post some pictures of the plug during its build to shut JF up.

To me its a "open and shut case", either you did or didn't, and the more you use expletives in your messages the more likely people who read this thread will consider you as a splasher.

As you continue to reply it appears you are still interested in this subject so why not let JF take whatever measurements with his "back, sack and crack" wax and shut him up.

Regards

Mark

yes,
you buy you try.

i'll be happy for you to even try just the front, if that is all you think i have stolen?

i'll even sell you the rib with no front bow eye so you can TRY!!!!!!!!!!! and fit it in your mould.

you know as well as i, the phantom 18 has given me a lot of insperation. but my rib is NOT a splash. it is diferant in many ways.

i agree with you steve baker was excellent at designing/building boats, and i wish he was still producing top class boats 2day as the boating industry would have evolved so much quicker..
