Just my opinion of course, but I believe Mike is rolling over in his grave at the thought of this.

Actually, Mike had a strong interest in RIBs. It started in 2012 when the Oracle team flew him to San Francisco in advance of the America's Cup to work on their support RIB. Check out the story, https://www.speedonthewater.com/oute...icas-cup-team/.

If a new product (with a twist from the norm) will solidify the future for OL it's a good thing. With Steve's history in Rigids, it's not like they are going in blind by any means.

Hell, the first time I seen pics of the Cougar R12Viper, I was blown away by what a "Rib" boat actually could be.

Best of Luck to OL

A rib opens up OL to the general public, the Yacht Tender market (EU market is mainstream) as well as Military tenders for added income stream...

John Cosker's company started with the C5000R but he took Mystic to where the market demand was... each of his boats are no less a Mystic with the C5000 pedigree - just as the OL will remain testament to MIke Fiore (RIP)...

Outerlimits close proximity to Newport is also a great chance for them to showcase what else they can accomplish. Huge tender market .
