Hi Matiboy

It's a little project we've been working on, we've just finished the molds and this is the first section to come out. There's a rear splashwell section to go on and then the whole thing will be teak decked and some mighty fine upholstery put on. It's a bit of a luxury tender type of boat, i think a lot of hard core rib enthusiasts would shun it!!! We've picked up on the idea of a bow-rider section for a rib. You see them all the time in sport and liesure orientated hard boats so why not on a rib???

Nah looks pretty good, not my sort of boat (where would the dive kit go?!) but not bad. Certainly looks like the build quality is alreet.

And yeah, keep the pics comin as you work on it!

Why did you make the tubes wrinkly around the bow?

i

There was very little air in them at the time of the photo as the deck molding was'nt attatched, all the wrinkles disappear when they are at normal pressure ...... unlike the crease in the bow section of a certain boat at the last london boat show
