Good to see jobs returning to the EU from the far east. They are nice boats. The Club I dive with have one. Nice boat but stern heavy. Probably the bottles stored in the stern

hi

last thing I know is that the Swedish owner who I saw at Dusseldorf Boot 2012 is doing his best to promote the Tornado again.

But he did not say it was manufactured in the UK. So in my opinion still China product....

Hi guys,

I can confirm that we at Tornado RIBs have moved back to the UK and have manufacturing in Hull and Poole. We're really excited to expand the brand this year and bring some new technologies to the table, currently we're using a new lightweight technology and are slashing the weight of the hulls enormously! We're coming into the 21st century and just made a facebook profile where we'll keep you all updated, here it is : Tornado Boats | Facebook
Give us some feedback on what you want to see going on with the boats because we're here to bring you a product you'll want and love...

The guys at Tornado

We aren't revealing too much about the new technology yet but tests so far have shown it is extremely effective; the main advantage is being able to run a smaller, more economical engine without any loss of performance and also lower transport costs.

I must have misheard you before, I thought you said that pile of scrap was Angling Lead, not Anglican Lead

Still, don't worry about the 85s. In 20 years time the ribnobburs on here will be fighting all winter over the relative merits of lead in/lead out...
