That loudmouth Jon Fuller from BoatMad reckons that you've splashed that boat and it's not your design at all!

I've got a 10 bet with him that you're legit -- after all you wouldn't come on here shouting about your own design if you'd nicked it -- so can you do me a big favour and post some pictures of the plug to shut him up?

Thanks

Come on, give the guy a chance. He probably hasn't even seen my post yet.

How can anyone tell anyway??? Some subtle changes can make all the difference. it is also possible for 2 people to come up with the same design quite independently!!!

Thank you to all out there taking an interest in my rib, YES MY RIB, MY DESIGN..
just because the planning hull is already in existence does this mean my boat is a copy?? I am pi*!d of with people saying
"that looks like a tohatsu",
"that looks like a scorpion",
"that looks like a ring",
"that looks like a evolution",
"looks like a ferryman",
"looks like a tornado" e.c.t e.c.t BLAH BLAH BBBBLLLLLLLAAAAAAAHHHHHH

ok it will look a bit like lots of boats in some ways because they are all made to do the same thing, just some do it better(mine ).

I know for a fact my rib may have a couple of features used from a selected few well known boats(as does most). but I am happy to say she is 95% my design/creation and there is not another like her.

all this bull SH*T came from jonny (who has edited boat mad to cover his story) and if JONNY you feel I have stolen your design see you in court WAN*ER!!!!!!

I can't remember saying it was my design you'd stolen!

And frankly, the people who own the design in question, aren't the type to involve the courts, if you know what I mean! so your use of that language probably wont do you any good.....Fabio.

Calm down! There's no need to throw a hissy fit -- just prove him wrong and shut him up.
