What, you didn't get that option Jimmy? You are quite right though, the Hurricanes are a much heavier construction than many of the boats referred to on this board. I made mention of this the day I signed up....

How's the weather holding up there by the way? Have you tucked your boat away yet? Mine is going in next week...


So how does one measure how heavy ones boat is laid up. Short of taking a core plug, and I certainly don't want to do that, none of us are going to know how heavy our boats are.

can you please explain why your Hurricane is better laid up then our Ribcrafts, Ribtecs, Avons, Halmatics, etc.

I'm not in the mood for an arguement just some facts.........

I wasn't suggesting the Hurricanes were necessarily "better", I think they just weigh more (which I presume comes from thicker hulls etc?). I came to that conclusion looking at manufacturers websites. Looking at various photos on this site, many of the boats appear to have smaller tubes compared to my boat, although that doesn't seem to be universal....

Biggles, I commented in a thread earlier (http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=16561 , 3rd post) that "your" boats seem to made and sold as "sport boats" in many cases, whereas most of the boats here are more "industrial" and marketed to the Coast Guard and military primarily...

Commercial Versions

If you have a commercial RIB, I would imagine that it is built as well as the hurricanes.. But like you said, it's hard to tell..

Nope.. No blonde.. I had to supply my own.. But she's not too bubbly.

I sent you a PM on the weather.. 20 degrees farenheit would be heat wave..

Have I missed something - do XS have a problem with toobs?
