Nice, does it come with snap davit fittings so I can stow it on back of the revenger when not in use?

I love these ally boats though, why does no-one build with ally any more Tony?

This one hasn't fallen apart (yet) and the kiwis don't seem to build boats from anything else! Is that amount of work hardening down to poor workmanship/welding? (no offence intended to anyone!!)

They dont have 3 600kg engines mounted solid and on surface drives, 13mm top grade alloy would just split for over 300mm with in 1 hour of racing. When new we had no problems like it. An amazing thing to go in when rough 50ft long and 8ft wide just no stopping it!!
