Haven't seen one of these before.

Never seen one of these before. Watched it coming out of the water at a small Marina on the South Coast and just had to take some pics. The old guy, nearly as old as me, used to race with Mike Ring in the 80's in a 25ft Ring and Mike apparently made only three of them. This old guy said with this engine it does about 60mph and is a very soft ride. More comfortable than the 25ft Mono!

Search the Forum under ringcat 22 Rockey has just finished one the moulds were with TD but were sold on to Belgium where you can still get them made there are under Project Boats on Boats & outboards.
They are a lovley looking boat though. The one in the pic is the one used in the original Promo material and for the boat test. has to be the twin XR2 one thats up Norf If I had to choose.

3ft longer and with twin XR2's and it would be one hell of a ride.

Has anyone, for instance Tony D have any idea what the cost of one of these boats would be in todays market place? Just curious, already had a frown thrown at me by her indoors by just looking at it and dribbling.

£8,000 ono! plus freight and a nice big outboard coming in at less than £20,000. Sounds tempting. At that sort of price I am amazed that Mike Ring didn't try to sell more.

He probably didn't sell more because they were slow for a cat, I believe the one fitted with twins only ran in the 70's at records week on windermere.

Depends what you are going to power with & the level of trimming reckon with a used 2.5 or 300 you might get away with 20 but knowing toys & boys more around 23k

£8k buys you a hull and deck, bonded with the minimum of stiffening/structures. Upholstery will cost around £2k, (the one i've just completed was nearly £3k !!!!) then you've got fuel tank and fittings, deck hardware, steering, standoff box, electrics ertc,etc as well as several weeks of boatbuilding to finish the boat!

With a good s/h motor you'll be looking at £25k+, unless your looking at selfbuild!

You are all probably right but a man can dream and anyway part of the fun in buying a boat is the fact that you convince yourself that you can afford it so you donít want to listen to all the sensible arguments. On a last point, personally I would prefer a cat that was ďa soft rideĒ suited for the English Solent chop rather than one built for lakes and speed that couldnít go out in anything over a force 3/4.

I know Large Hampton marina quite well but haven't been there for years. Is that big red Donzi still down there? Always sounded nice. In fact lots of nice machinery in that neck of the woods.............
