I dont often coment on other designs but this one is maverick.
JW agree with you 100%.
Also may be ok in a short chop but not in a big sea. Would go dam well astern though !!
I have no racing experience whatsoever but I guess it may have an application (ish) there.
I remind that with the case of bigger and bigger RHIBS or ones with fancy designs ..... are we trying to make something better than possible out of a fundamental product.
If you want a 20m boat sitting proud of the water then what is the use of tubes... if it is stability then look at the hull design rather than the tubes. Same applies to fancy racing hulls.
Suggestion is go back , define what a RHIB is along with its intended use. OK make it pretty or useful but do not try and make it something that the ethos of a RHIB is not.
I guess the point is that novelty and inovation are a mile apart. The RHIB 40 years ago was the inovation.....................
