One suggestion....

Nugent,

Good looking RIB, Congrats, particularly pulling it all together yourself!

Can I make one suggestion/recommendation? The windscreen is great and good weather protection. However you might want to put something along the top edge of it either some sort of padding or maybe a stainless rail. Reason being is that if you stuff the boat the driver/front passaneger inevitably gets propelled forward and thats an awfully sharp perspex edge to connect with your face!

all sugestions openly received,

first of all must point out that with out Dave Mannings assistance it would still be sitting there uncomplete and me sulking.

The boy done good! Nuge fitted this boat out to a better standard than many factory finished boats. Not a self tapper used anywhere, everything water tight and only top quality fittings used.

He could make a career out of doing this.
