There's nothing wrong with them that I'm aware of, but then I am slightly biased.
My boats (extreme's) are indeed built in the original Ring Powercraft Sportscruiser moulds, which I bought from Mike in the mid 90's. The first of the Honda 21 Boats were built by ourselves (laminating by Mark Pascoe at Vulture Ventures) and the current crop of 150hp Honda (Cougar) boats are derived from them as well.
We are also building the 20 sportsboat, with a restyled deck and revised spray rails. Demo boat shall be available early next year, 2007.
It really is a case of each to their own, but are both excellent boats.
I even owned a 25 Phantom once myself!
And a 20 Ring was european champ in 2 litre in the early 80's.
