I thought they were knock off's of the Raper Hull? Go on codders show us a picture of your chines.

prosport bought the temptress moulds and modified them slightly after the first few hulls, just added a flange to increase the beam. allegedly the temptress was a rapier knock off which in turn, allegedly, shared dna with revenger.

And the Revenger was a Don Shead design.
I'm told by a VERY good and well informed source that Shead was never paid by Slogit for the design. Something about not being happy that it had a tendency to chine walk (or chime walk if your name is leeway), so Lorne Campbell was asked to tweek it, which he did by adding some reverse chines to it, which sorted the problem.

So there you go, how many Revengers sold? and god knows how many derivitives, and Shead never got a bean.
Slogits name is a swear word in the Shead houshold I would think.

Yes remember being in Lorne Campbell's office in Poole when he was working on it, and as JF said those were the reasons he stated and from then on knock of's r us were never ending...I wonder what the knock of boat was, maybe a rip of from the first revenger 27 hard boat's of which I believe there were 3 deck versions made, or maybe it's all Gordon's fault he had the first 27 rib Revenger (only kidding Gordon) was told the extra bit of glass over the front was part of the 10% by a ripper, aka Mr cod's boat and every other ripper...if so was only ever 1 revenger splashed and every other is a splash of a splash makes ye think

The Revenger line of boats has a very simular hull design running on from the 27 does this mean that Slogit made up with Don Shead and he did the work on the rest of the range up to present day?

Mr Cod in my last post re copy's I am not saying that your particular boat has suffered any undue problems from being a copy as I have read on a number of occasion's how happy you are with the handling of your boat
