Default 47" Falcon Mono by PIP

Does anybody have this boat here?
http://www.precision-in-perfection.co.uk/falcon.html

Anyone have more pictures of this boat? Front, top, interior, rear, bottom view? Done up?
What sizes does it come in?
Can I fit a Zenoah 260 PUM into it?
How much did you pay for the hull?

Viper,
before you spend some money on a boat from UK (Shipping UK - Canada will cost you more than the boat), do a quick search.
there are a few threads regarding PIP (some good, some bad).

since your in Ontario, have a look at AC model boats.

Dan.

I know and you are most right. I just needed to get kicked. The boat is what I am looking for in a mono hull. I love my RIO hull but I wished the bottom and transom looked liked the Falcon's single stepped hull. I was drawing one out when I happened to bump into the link.

Does anybody know something similar to its design?. Maybe dreaminhemi might want to take on a project like this on a 54" offshore and a 48" race format.

What do you think dreaminhemi?

This is mine shipping isnt cheap as has been said.Im shipping a 50" hydro to Canada very soon and was quoted under£200 .For a mono of 47" which mine is it would be less i would think.Shes not a circuit racer though she prefers rough water more an offshore style hull but ive lowered the freeboard to make her more sleak to look at and she still handles the same in fact id say better.

I definitely see that it is a single step off shore and is a deep V hence it should perform better out in the wild but is that a falcon? The Falcon seen seems a lot more shallower and the hatch is definitely more sleeker.
Do you still still have it as a hull only or have you already ran it? Vids maybe? Really curious how they handle on calm and rough water...

No this is not a falcon its the stepped vee i build.Ive sold arround 30 so far and 100% good feedback so far.They have been powered with a modded zenoah,sick and good old weedy power.Deff not a calm water boat,she runs wet when water is calm and prefers some chop.More a sports runner than a racer for sure .
