Hi I actually work in a school
not go to one an my ideal hull would be a phantom 18 or 21, for tube lengths, I would want to race it but if potentially it could end up a disaster I won't risk it??
Thanks
chris

The Phantom 19 is a modified 18 by multiple OCR Champion Nick Barsch and Steve Baker (of Phantom) - in turn Nick turned the 19 into what is a very nice RIB - Neil Holmes also makes a Phantom Evolution RIB, many others have copied the design unofficially as Paul says - the thing is it would never be a disaster unless you bodged the job or chose the wrong hull despite what others have said ............

Hi thankyou so much for all you help and advice. the plan would be to buy a cheap phantom 18 and modify that, as allthough i wasnt aware Nick had made a 19ft phantom rib, i am sure they are still very expensive and hard to come by? Also if i did go ahead with this project as i am not to far away from you would you be able to assit with the parts im sure i would find too hard? In your opinion would doing it this way be a cost effective soloution to say purchasing a leeway or similar?
many thanks again for all you help and advice
Chris

No of course not - to do all of that work would be anything but cost effective - on the other hand I wouldn't buy a Leeway either but that's my opinion!

Don't think so, I think he's made a few - call Nick himself on 07770478911 or Neil Holmes for the Phantom Evolution

I'd have a go at doing it, it'll be only as bad as you make it!
Paul Tilley at tidel.biz should be able to make some tubes for you.

Hmmmmm!

The man who makes boats says No
The man who rescues folks from sinking boats says Yes

I'm sure there's no agenda at work here
