Hmmmm, nice, but not really my thing. I have always like the commercial boats - something like this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ex-Na...72969464QQrdZ1

The local tow boat operator in Portland Maine (usa) has a real nice rig, of course I only saw it from the dock...


What i like is the deck space fore and aft, I dont want a cabin cruiser style.

That doesn't have a hard top either!

Mark - think this is the Scorpion referred to

Also the other shot is not quite a RIB (Sacrilege i know) but is a wicked boat and incredibly practical (i know of one or two RIB aficionados on this forum who are rather partial to them)

Ah yes, although I was referfing to the two Hot Lemon pictures that were posted.

I like the idea of hard-ish top but it looks like an after thought on the grey Scorpion, which of course it was. Sure Graham could come up with something that looks way more stylish

Those are interesting... I'll have to investigate further.

The above us surplus rib doesnt have a hardtop, or pilot house, but looks as if it may easily be adapted so.
