Some interesting theories ............. Kitten building another model? Well he may well be but this is a proper RIB capable of carrying at least 5 passengers!

i guess some of us were thinking you build toys now!

so is this just a wild guess session or is it possible to research and get a bit of a clue?

Funny you should say that - we made a pair of model Phantom 19's for the crew of the Gibraltan OCR boat that we made with brushless outboards that go very well indeed - we might bring one to Cowes if we have time! Kitten has a slightly unruly twin motor one which needs full concentration!

This new boat has been fairly secret and there is certainly no official information or clues on our website, but I can tell you it's smaller than the previous models and an even bigger clue - it isn't an outboard!

Not sure if any of that helps really!

Am I right in thinking that it's based on the Salcombe Flyer hull? If it's an inboard, I'm thinking it'll be the Flyer 530 model, so:

1. 5.3 metres of hull length
2. Lets say 40cm of tube overhang at the rear and 30cm at the front, so 6.0 metres total length
3. Small sterndrive, so either the Mercruiser Vazer or the 120 bhp diesel.

How'd I do?
