Seasport

The Seasport look like great boats but the only one I know of around here is a new 2005, 90 yam at around $27000 two costly for me.

I would just like to add that although our RIBs are designed to have the tubes in the water at rest for stability, they are out of the water at speed - they also certainly do not slow the boat down - the race version of our leisure boat reached 91.5 mph this week and set a new outboard immersed prop mono hull record for the UK and also a world record if we can get the UIM to ratify it!

We used a standard Mercury 2.5 Offshore rated at 280 HP, a modified Raker 26 and our Race hull weighed in at 975 kg if anyone is interested!

Congratulations on the pending WR! That is fast!
