Come to thinks of it, I can remember pics of some Tornado hulls which had those chine flats running right around to the bow, just like the Ring hull....hmmm.

My rib has a ring hull. Its good in calm to moderate seas but gets a bit twitchy in anything more I stay in Findhorn and we get some pretty rough seas in the entrance to the bay, the boat can handle it but is not particularly comfortable. Have a single 150 on the back and its good for 55mph. Also my console is pretty high so you often feel you are going to fall off when you turn sharply and im pretty sure we could flip her if turned sharp enough

you also have to remember there are two types of hull, there is the ring as I had as a sports boat and is probably the ribeye hull, and the exteme 21 which has a wider beam to support a cuddy cab

although having not seen the boat, I am sure in the photo that looks like the sports boat hull, however I do believe all the ring ribs were from the sports boat range, over the years having owened and raced one many years back, I obviously became quite a fan....also have spent loads of hours years back thrashing around in phantoms also a truly excellent hull. I have asked people I have come across over the last 7-8 years with a ring rib what they thought and most comments regards there sea keeping and general drivability was very positive. Shearwater ribs must be built on the exteme range of hulls, TD from exteme and of course shearwater could say where the hull originated from

There is a serie one, two and three hulls and also a pleasure range.
The pleasure range has 6 - 6,5 and 7,2m, these are the most narrow hulls with 46cm tubes, option for tappered tubes.
The serie one hulls are made in 6,85 - 7,5 and 8,6m, these are little wider than the pleasure range, they often comes with smaller tubes (46 - 50cm) than the serie two hulls, option is also tappered tubes.
The serie two has the sizes 8,5 - 9,5 and 10,5m, these hulls are much wider and has wider speedrails than the serie one hulls, the tubes comes in 56cm with option on tappered tubes.
The serie three hulls is 12 - 13 - 15 and 16m and are even wider than the serie two hulls, same diameter on tubes as on the serie two hulls but option with even bigger tubes and offcours tappered tubes.
All serie three hulls are stepped.
Hope this gives some info about the hulls.

10.5 m stepped hull, would I be right in assuming the same as Forone with the twin 250 hp mercs in the P1 series ? which is doing remarkably well considering it only has 500 hp, even Buzzi bullet had 600 hp although I would not like to argue with the brilliance of buzzi hulls, Fabio is I believe an amazing enginer racer designer
