    Why is this the first time I am coming across this... Maybe i'm just really late to the 'party' but for anyone else who have not seen one...what are your thoughts? It looks like a stylish bob in the water.

    It's bigger than it looks. Nearly 25 feet. Deadrise is shallow for its length. Should be stable but short of ventilation, the greenhouse effect may have passengers seeing green.

    There is a narrow walkway around, but I think building it as a RIB would be an improvement...

    Good point, Lars.
    I'm actually in your neighborhood- having lunch at Arlanda, on a layover to FLL.

    That might be the reason why the front opens so you can access the cleat without having to trek around the sides because there are no grab rails forward of the main window.
