for me the bit i am not sure about on the boat is the brown windscreen and the ugly canvas top with clear windows, if something different was dong there to follow some of the angles already set up on the boat i think it would look better, also the brown perspex in that shape looks like a dated boat style windscreen. if those bits were different i think it would look better..........just some honest feedback, but the more i look at it the more it grows on me...except the windscreen

hope you have lots of success with it

Are you nuts?! Since when was the Mona Lisa ever described as a thing of beauty? A Vipermax is the Kate Moss of the Rib world. Small, neat, bad girl but bloody lovely. Your Excaliber Wrap is more of a Pat Butcher!
yes your right it dose look like Kate Moss, Week looking and looks like it has something snorted up it's nose.

Get real! The Vipermax is one of the best looking Ribs out there, unless you're Frank Butcher!!

Its not that disimilar to the rap around windscreen of the larger Redbays. Having sat behind one on a wet and windy trip in Oban I can confirm that they are superb bit of kit and sod the aesthetics.

Isn't this the difference between Ribnet who use boats as a form of transport and Boatmad who like to polish, admire and talk about it rather than do it

Henry/ Joe, any interior & engine bay shots??

Joe,
Whats the Volvo like compared to the Yammys? Any thoughts about using the new Yam 24 Valve ME432 (315hp) in an Excalibur? Could make for a very quick RIB in one of the 8meters.

You are right - I expect from a purely functional perspective the wrap around screen would be great - but i think you ought to rephrase your comment slightly to the difference between people who use their boats for transport and the people who use them for pleasure.

I think that Irish barge thing is ugly as sin - but if you are disputing the fact that I USE my rib then i suggest you check out my recent posts - ive been out in her 5 days out of the last 6 (3 weekends) and not polished her once.
