Yeah, although if they're openly claiming they've modified it! Is there a rule change for next year on the cards???

Not yet! In the middle of something else right now but wont rule out the 28 yet, just waiting for better times to return before we commit to tooling up something that big. Have put a few ideas on paper, it will be all new! Would ideally like to have option of twin I/O or O/B's. What you think?

Yeah, I've spoken to him a few times, not much about RI to be honest but I think there are some changes to stopover venues etc! Waiting on rules myself!

Twin Talon is nuts, I'd go to see that! You could be surprised, sometimes the craziest things work for the better! Twins on a Skater 21 used to be crazy, now it's just normal! Turbines in a 40' cat used to be wild, now it's fairly common place in the states!

What you planning on running round Ireland?

Not sure what we're going to do!

Should be a good race though, still waiting on rules to see if we can run a cat or what the story is!

I thought it looked like an 18, although he was told it was a 20 when he bought it so maybe! TBH, I don't know the dif between the phantom models, except length!

Either way, nice boat, rides well with the 200 merc, one of only few boats around I have to play with! Not many perf/ race boats round here! Not offshore anyway.
They took a ride in the 21 Cat today and couldn't believe how soft the ride was after the Phantom. It was quite rough but not the worst we've been out in. the cat will take a lot as long as you're quick on the throttle. Missed a few today and got some BIG air
