This is a nice boat!

I spent some time talking to South Yorks Police who have just got a 6.4m Ribquest with the same console but four single pods behind.

After giving a good look over its a substantial rib that looks very well built ...... to a Ribcraft type standard.

How it fares after a few years of use is always the test but we did try it alongside a 6.2m Avon Searider with twin 60hp and the Ribquest was way behind when it was more than a couple of metres swell!

Nice job

I thought the new owners might be able to turn out a decent craft. Very tidy workshop pics

Did the makers ofer the photos or did you do them yourself. I think that a photo album from polishing the mould to the finished boat rolling out of the door should be presented with every new rib.

it would be good to know how it stands up to the abuse
