The bigger 14ft one looks okish, probably a lot of fun but I wouldn't want to go far from land in it - as for the others!!! - fun? I reckon the person who designed them was crazy! The people who took this picture...insane..

They've got a couple of fit birds, one clinging for dear life right over the back, (in about the worst position you could possibly be in apart from dangling from the front!) and obviously as the thing is so short and weighs about as much as a gnats fart, the slightest touch of the throttle from that 25horse hung on the back and the bow is facing the sky - throwing fitty off the back, for her arms/head/legs to be turned into cat food... this wouldn't be so bad if she was wearing a buoyancy aid of some sort... I would have probably let all that go in the name of FUN but then I notice the thing has only one tube inflated and has an effing great rip down the side of it!!! - in a brochure shot!!! - classic!

I can't really see the point in these, they don't do anything better than a big jetski or a rib and miss the whole benefit of a jetski entirely - the JET! - No exposed Prop!

In just about every picture here it looks like it's about to tip over!

Edit: No Wait, I take that back; that piece of c**p that makes it look like it has a burst tube in this pic is infact some sort of storage bag. - Actually It could be a body bag for the passenger, once you've recovered them from the water.

Rino's were great, a RIB! - the collar on the thing above is like a zap cat without the cat!
