Starovich that is the old flatacraft enforcer possibly using a hunton hull (with permission not splashed) Gtflash Dowdy has not splashed the hull he has brought a plug from a third party that was based on a phantom evolution ,the company that made it may have spashed a phantom evolution or might have based their own design on it .but dowdy has not spashed the hull and should be wished the best of luck with his new venture no matter who is making the tubes

I would strongly recommend Paul Tilley down here in Devon. He has tubed 8 boats for us now and we have always been very pleased with his quality and service.

Paul as you quite rightly say this may be a legitimate 'original' design or a licensed copy... but if someone else splashes a hull and I buy the moulds surely I'm still as guilty as the splasher? Or are you suggesting I can pop over to the IoW and buy a mould from ribnet's most infamous splasher and set up in business and I'll be morally and legally fine?
