It's been a long time coming... but it's nearly here

Some of you may remember that last year I decided to have a new RIB built by Ocean Ribs. Well, due to many different circumstances (none due to Malc or Colin at Ocean I should add) it has been a while in production but finally the end is in sight. Yesterday I picked up a new trailer from Arthur at De Graaf and when I dropped it off at Ocean I took a few pics of the boat as it stands at the moment.

Definitely looking forward to getting it on the water (especially now the sun is out )

Keith

Do you intend to work the trim with your little finger?

You win the prize for spotting the deliberate mistake actually I only spotted it when I looked at the photos, the control hasn't been swapped over yet for LH operation.

I actually like using the trim button on this side as I actually hold the shaft of the throttle and not the top.
