I am sure Scorpion will be DELIGHTED to be compared to the Ford Focus...

(actually the Focus isn't a bad car tbh...

Revenger is really a pleasureboat with quality far from military grade. I have driven a lot of military/commercial Boomerangers, for example last three days and nights, and Revenger (also tested them for hundreds of miles) is nothing near their construction and bad weather performance. Hurricane is equal or even better to Boomeranger, so there's much more different than Ullman seats in those boats.

Scorpion quality is not familiar to me in person, but as far as I have heard experineces from them, they are also far from military level. Still well suitable for pleasure use, but we should not say that Ford Focus will make the same job as Hummer...:-)
I think you will find that it's the Scorpions and Revengers that hold most of the offshore records like the fastest around Britain etc - constant high speed in very rough weather!

There are plenty of good British commercial designs as well such as Avon Delta etc etc.

Scorpions and Revengers are not built to Mil spec. far from it in fact, they are built with a degree of refinement and with an eye to saving some weight where possible this isn't the case with a military boat. I agree with your comment about British commercial manufacturers not forgetting Halmatic or Ocean Dynamics

I think a better automobile analagy would have been the difference between a BMW and a Hummer
