Unusual Rib design

Found this one. Not sure myself. What do you think about it ?

Looks a bit like somebody has dumped a cabin in the front of a standard Rib but maybe that's just me. Will it pass the Ribnet masses ?

The manufacturer website is below for more details

A YouTube video for them is here

I can see why 'orcarib'. It looks like a whale.

Mmmm, looks a bit odd to me.

I dont mind "different" if its for the sake of function or efficency or to do some specific task. But it still needs to "look" good.

(But I cant really comment, my boats not that normal looking.)

Perhaps they ought to join forces with the styling genius who invented the "Killer Ka" Ford Ka Orca body kit!

You've got to love the Barry Boys for a spot of honest feedback!

looks like the bastard offspring of a RIB & a suppository.

I have 3 questions

1/ How do you see anything if you're sat down at the helm ?
2/ How do you set up an anchor on this thing ?
3/ What were they smoking ?
