Word Association - Delta

Now before people moan, i have done a search through the old posts but....

If i said to you delta, you would say....(insert phrase here)

I have heard
Good sturdy boats
and
Disappointed with finished article

Anyone else to add to that? Particulary interested with sea worthiness, as test drove one on possibly the flatest water ever seen in Soton! despite the Fastcat wake it wasn't much of a test!

Regards

When I think of Delta RIBS I think of commercial applications, twin outboards and that big high pointy bow they seem to have

Sorry dad….

Delta RIB’s are very capable and have deep V and as stated high bows… the Police have one in the forth seams to go all right with twin 90’s

Hard ride, very wet. Impressive build quality and seakeeping though. Probably very expensive.
