    his website goes on about "Why FPB" etc

    "Fast Patrol Boat" is closest I've found, but seems wrong, although his FPBs might make decent FPBs.

    I thought he said is stood for Fast Power Boat (average speed). But as far as I can tell it's just a trade name like Beneteau's oceanis or First.
