Designers and Builders

Wasn't it Don Aronow? Or did he just build them? :confused:
 
Don Aronow usually gets the credit, but I'm pretty sure he didn't do the design.

I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't a bit of a splash when they made the first one. Geddit..bit of a splash..

Who designed the original Cigarette?

I think it's a joint design, Walt Walters & Jim Wynne, with a lttle helping hand from a fella called Leeway, who made a few 'improvements'.

I thought is was "Peter Styversant":lol:lol:
 
Bluebird jetboats...Peter Milne, with Ken Norris as design co-ordinator.

But what about the following:

Marina
Hustler
Fibre Fab
Fonda
Rum Runner
 
I assume your not referring to the same peeps who di the Ring 16's...............or have they been Marina dating back to when brown gell-coat was the done thing?

Quite interested in knowing a bit about Fonda............they turn up every so often

I'll add all this to the list later (in the middle of a Barclays conference now, I'd get shot if they knew I was surfin, whilst doing sound for their chief exec :speechles )

If you ever need an excellent Sound guy give us a call!:hugegrin:

I am posting this for a friend who i unable to post himself

You can also add the following Ospreys models.

Eagle, Sparrowhawk, Sea Harrier, designed from scratch by the late Ralph Williamson and his son Mike Williamson who now builds the current range.

The Viper & Falcon range of hulls was developed from moulds bought from Fletcher with the rights, by Ralph and Mike.

You can also add Reiver to the list of speed boats up in Yorkshire.

And the last one, Polar Ribs 5.8m as I have bought the original mould of the former Osprey XR 18 and hope to build one for fun. I was able to trace the history back to Osprey to ensure I have the original mould although I may change the name.
 
OK, don't laugh at this one...

Temptress RIBs, now Prosport, designed as far as I know by someone called Giggleswick.
 
Cirrus Stiletto
Tiger Shark
Alpha
Javelin
C Speed
Seafire
Rum Runner
Zeus
Microplus
Aqua Jeep
Shetland Stratos

So who were the designers of that lot, and why so few sports boat builders now?
 
nobody really wants to buy new boats, too much second hand stuff on the market!
 
Marina Was Ron Wolbold

No, lots of us want to buy new boats. :)

It's just that we're either not allowed :argue: , or can't afford it! :cry: (or both in my case)
