[QUOTE=gtflash] and what would you have said 40 years ago john?? probably novelty and innovation are a mile apart. A sports boat does not need tubes, a sports boat nth years ago was the innovation......
GT, I stand corrected as you are quite right in that as history has proven the maverick ideas proved to be a sucess of the future.
My only reluctance is a production product when it should be a prototype.
This applies to many up and coming manufacturers who attempt to enter the market with a novelty. There I guess my point is in the fact that some RHIBS are sold as something that they are not ie. a genuine RHIB.
From here of course lies the definition of a RHIB and maybe JK has the patience to arbitrate that one !
