yes joseph swan had the first patent on a carbon filament light bulb in 1877, very true.. Edison just had more money and a powerstation or somet!! till he got strung up in court!!
however neither invented the carbon filament element .... humphry davy did in 1800.

So who invented matches!!

About 9/10 years ago Me and the Wavelet were working driving boats in search of oil in /off Portland the Navy/Marines were testing a radical new design of fast attack craft the design of which was referred to as the Very Slender Vessel

I wonder if this is a spin off from it!

[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 !

Cheers

John

No chance! We would have to get through the RIB or RHIB debate first!

Yeh. If you make a pronounced forefoot it acts like a front rudder and as soon as a wave lifts the stern a bit, the front veers off. It is very difficult to correct and you may not be able to prevent turning beam on. It does not need to be excessive and nothing like as pronounced as the pic in this thread. Interestingly, it is a benefit in piercing into a head sea. You just can't travel home again.

Been there, done it and changed it back part way.
