No, I don't think so. cutting a bit out, or adding a bit is pretty easy, I think any real changes, such as the progression to stepped hulls was done by Lorne, no contact with Shead as far as I know.

The 27 RIB was 25 hard boat hull, which as I say, was the original Shead creation for slogit back in the early 80's

How close does the design have to be to be considered a knock off?

It's not really a question of how close it is. If a doner was waxed up and a mould taken from it, that's it for me. But lets not go there again, we/I have done it to death.

well I hope Don Shed has done well out of all the rest of his design's, since uni in the 80's I have enjoyed watching his design's race, particularly cruiser class guys in the 25ft boats not to mention all the CUV's the legend (often retired) follett cars and the Plantec 40 plus many adventures on a XPS 34

I bought Tom Falla's boat earlier this year and after getting to grips with it, am highly delighted. We sailed it back from Guernsey without a hitch and have used it throughout the summer (if you can call it that) without any problems whatsoever. Great ride, great looks.. OK, it's not a Scorpion or a Cobra but we have no worries climbing on and off wondering if we are going to the damage beautiful white seats, 'cause there aren't any - it's completely black! A bit utilitarian but for us, that's a plus.
