RC 5.85 Design changes since introduction?

Have there been changes to the essential hull design, actual dimensions, etc.
since the beginning of the Ribcraft 5.85 introduction? Any insights highly welcome.

thanks,
Nick

Best ask Ribcraft, Dorian Martin or Jason Purvey. Anything else is just conjecture.

I think overall you'll find the "Tweaks" have been minor and the basic Hull design and materials/constructin used have stayed pretty much the same ....although I've seen a very few experiments with different deck materials and things like moulded splash wells ect...they haven't taken off...and tells its own story.

I'm sure if you contacted Ribcraft they would be happy to happy to furnish you with more info.
It is a classic design and was/is a mainstay of their range which has helped to cement their reputation over the years...for good Boats.
