It floats!!!

Very nearly finished - removable seats for front to be sorted though!!! Also engine instruments to fill in some holes. Then I can bring it home!!!

Looks a LOT brighter than I thought.

Looks like there's a wee hole in the bow locker that could do with some gaffer tape and a placcy bag too!


Hmm, also might be worth considering a stainless bar/grab rail around the windscreen? Could get a little nasty...

Congrats, Codders, that is one very pretty looking RIB Love the tube colour (alpine blue?); can't understand why you never see more of it.

Yes he's sorting out the front hatch this week - don't want to wait any longer so said I would sort out a rail around the screen - normally he fits a smaller screen but I said I wanted a larger one which will be supported by a rail.

Thanks Phil - took ages to decide on colour - don't really like the Ibiza blue - didn't think the Alpine blue would be that bright though!!!

Paul Tilley makes great tubes!!!

Cool, I'd get that on sooner rather than later, last thing you want is first trip out a split face on the windscreen!

I like your tube colour for a pleasure rib (think it's a bit bright for me, reminds me of my gay kia sportage). Only thing I would have done is not gone for the rubber handles - they perish, and people try and use them as cleats.

She looks awesome, despite a slightly boxy looking console, I think the design of it appears really good, perhaps some close up pics? Like the angled instruments etc. Classy looking boat!
