Barry (Carson) is selling some of his moulds. Have a look on apolloduck.

He used to be my neighbour. Heavy duty commercial / military RIBs are what they specialised in. Still a few being built.

Its a Carson

I've got the shorter version of the hull. Built like a brickhouse. Very seaworthy design. Do a search on here for carson, I thinks its the pressman who still builds them.

That's quite a lot of boat for not silly money for someone with the time.

It is a Carson. Have a look at this thread to see what they scrub up like.
