that seems massively over weight, i wonder if that is tubes or just a bare hull with nothing in it, if it is my guess is it should be half that weight

as i said not trying to knock, with the engines they're running they should be faster, i know the have bigger tubes, i can only assume the over spec the layup to make them tougher, i tried to get on to there tech bit on the web but it said error 404, i'm sure someone will put me straight soon enough

heeeelllo

the thread is interesting re big cabin ribs, with great pics willk re the new redbay being launched Im very curious to see the a new parker cabin rib if the inside is smarter. Also very curious to see the new boats built by the ex redbay person. Im a leisure user not commercial, so more leisure orientated ribs with a cabin that can handle decent sea is great to read about................but Cailin bear hasn't posted for a while

the old grey matter is starting to shut down, i've seen some pic's of a parker cabin and i here they are going more up market with plush interior's, i'm hoping to do a 10 m cabin this year if i get the time, i'm still interested if wilk could find out the layup spec
