And after that people worked out that there was no need for a separate space frame, all you need to do was put the structure in the boat where it needs to be. With hindsight its amazing it took us all so long to figure out something so bleedin' obvious.

Yes, after all, they'd made the same leap to monocoques in F1 in the early 60s, which makes you wonder why the space frame was later introduced into boats...

Could be because a metal frame won't creep when left under load, whereas a plastic hull will slowly bend.
