View Full Version : Mastercraft design copied?

Here is some pics of the new 2007 TIGE RZ2. I think I saw this design somewhere before... Is there a copyright for boat design?

You know what they say about imatation.

Course they made flat-nosed tri-hull years ago for the same reason and they went out of fashion.

one would think that with all the patenting of things in today's world, that there must have been some MC patent applications around the fork nose (and would have included several variations).

Not sure -- sounds like it's a pattent liasion's job to dig it out.

MC wasn't the first to use a pickle-fork hull and they won't be the last.

Why didn't someone post those pictures on here before, on here before, OH, nevermind, on here before!

Design was last seen on the batmobile of the 1960's.

Ok so far MB Sports and Tige have used this idea. Sure this pickle fork idea has been around for quite some time. Mut MC was the first to incorperate it into a V-Drive, and make it the worlds sickest wakeboarding boat.

MC makes better use of the pickle fork. They are the only ones providing a step on/off area between the tips and an optional step ladder. I thought we would never use ours, but we do.
