That looks cracking....great deal. I was close to buying it from Ebay myself, which is probably just as well I didn't as I have would have had no scoob where to start.

Will really look forward to following it's progress. Lots of pics of each step would be very warmly received as I fancy taking on project like this.

Good luck with her.

It'll be a long process as money is the limiting factor, engines will more than likely be ex RNLI twin Yam 75's, single 200hp would be nice but twins offer redunancy for harbour mouth and surf fun.
I'll stick as many photos as I can up.
Any requests let me know before its glassed down....

Would it be feasable to convert it to inboard?

<edit> No point really I guess, it'd be near as dammit to a pac 22 then

Could be but the transom is already lower than a Searider. I've used an Atlantic 21 with twin 70's and so far its the best RIB I've used.....

I did look at Pacific's but I don't fancy the hassle and weight of an inboard.... got that with the Tremlett.
The outboards can be easily replaced in a couple of hours. Don't get me wrong if one came along at the right price.............

Fair.

Saying that, I've wanted to mess around with a pair of the mental HP VW common rail diesels and a couple of jets since they came out. I'll prob never do it because it'd cost a fortune, but it'd make a fun boat...

Chewy, I hate you already! An interesting project, a clean indoors area to work in, and a bike to boot. You don't know you are born

What a thing of beauty, have you had the weep fixed on the tank? They look stainless are they? if so find the leak and TIG over it.
