Buy a Arctic 22 or 24 tidy up the hull and retube, put two BIG engines on the back!

Pablo, I think its a good thing if they don't touch especially if you leave you boat on the water for any length of time.

That wouldn't be the case. The boat needs to be stable when stopped for kitting up in rough water.

With divers onboard the tubes will touch the water. This is exactly the market the original Viper design was aimed at. Divers liked the hard nosed ribs but wanted more space and a stable platform at rest. So Osprey built the Viper range and brought it to market just as divers suddently decided they all wanted to go rib diving. Ospreys timing was perfect and they sold quite a few.

The XR24s were professionally designed to take a 1/2 tonne payload very quickly across water and clearly aimed at the sports boat market but served equally well running funny cigarettes into Gib. Perhaps launched a little ahead of there time when first revealed in Feb 92. None the less a good boat to go very quickly in.

However I have no idea what the current builder has planned for the design and its hardly time to launch a new business in the marine trade at the moment.

Even lightweight divers (I mean divers without bottles) ? We don't take much kit at a time and are never more than four to a boat. Spearfishing requires being very discreet, so no air cylinders, freediving only, and not more than a maximum of 4 in the water at one time (even 4 is too many).
