...and you thought Rings liked to hook!

Any one fancy hammering through a following sea in one of these?!

To be fair I've never seen one in the flesh or heard from anyone who's ridden one but you'd think it's bow might wander a bit!?!

Anyone been on/seen one - what are they actually like??...would be interested to hear (yeah I know its a bloody RIB!!)

Wouldn't wanna go quick in one, but I bet they're pitch stable (right up to the moment just before you get chucked out)

At least it's a genuinly new design, and not splashed. (well, at least I've never personally seen one like that before)

notice how much positive trim he's running in that first pic!
