Ribbing - puts hair on your chest.Agree with all previous comments. But ribbing does not have to be uncomfortable. Here is the latest picture showing the "independent" with drivers seat removed and prior to going out last week in a 7. Currently stats are as follows:

current highest speed obtained 52knts at 5000 rpm. 19 " props to be replaced by 22" soon. in force 6
Consumpumtion at this speed 40 liter/hour/engine. Miimum at 23 knts has been (2300 rpm)-20 liters/hour/engine.
We are hoing to go 60+ knts.

Nauticus trim tabs - with two activators per tab have been fitted and provide excellent stability at high speed. Thouroughly recommendable.

Shortly after this photo taken , driver was "interrogated" by Osstende harbour police.. another story..

Oi! Mr Fuller,

Ribnet has 2441 subscribers, Pete 7 has already pointed out some advantages of hardboats with which I'd agree and I'd reckon there'd be 2000 or so other opinions as well.
I know what you mean about the Rib/ Rescue mentality but at the end of the day that's only going to do more good than harm isn't it? You get folks like that in all walks of life, look for the BMW motorcyclist wearing a white helmet and a yellow jacket playing traffic cops, I bet he's probably near the bottom of the list to wrap himself round a lampost though cause he takes pride in what he's doing.
As for

I take it there's none of that in racing?
Come on who's idea was it to paint 'LEVIATHAN' all over their boat?
You're a very bad man.

'Leviathan' is a mythical sea monster, just a name for me boat.

As for 'Macho', If you knew me, you'd know there's no macho side to my personality, i'm just an FGT who's a little tired of hearing how 'invincible' blow up boats are!

OK. You obviously know all about C27's so tell us how much a C27 is to import and name some ribs which are much better suited to their design purpose.

He probably means KPH, rather than Knts, after all, he's from Belgium.
