nice to see the scorp boys and girls lightening up a bit, the retrospectively named light banter and windup may not have been seen that way by the ribeye owners, as indeed the scorp owners might take a bit of dislike to their boats being slagged off even if it is in gest.


its like engines, you go for the one that you like or has good service and support local to you, folks choose different boats for different reasons and of course to fit their budget.

was over at cowes at the weekend and loads of ribeyes over there..

I guess i am lucky in having an osprey as no one seems to give them a slagging or bad press

For general information, and in a very loosely connected way, a RIBEYE may be assisting in entertaining you shortly in a very different way.

If you like Harry Potter films, the making of the Harry Potter 5 is currently underway, and includes some exciting action shots on the Thames.

The production company have chartered a RIBEYE 750 to mount one of the the cameras for the fast shots down the river.

So as you sit back in your local cinema enjoying the amazing film, rest assured that the incredible scenes unfolding before you were brought to you by my RIBEYE.

...and yes, the camera stayed on the boat, and yes the boat stayed in one piece, and no the boat didn't reach 70 mph.

That's OK, I was looking at the Scorpion website earlier and the smallest one weighs 2 tonnes according to the manufacturer, so you can wind 'em up and they will never catch you, prolly need about 1000hp just to get it on the plane, dunno what the hull is made out of must be reinforced concrete at that weight, great big lardy things you want to get a nice boat like a Humber, a third of the weight
