Seconded (although I mentioned it earlier).

The OP will have put a lot of thought and (as a previous RC owner) experience into his decision to purchase a spanking new Ribcraft. He has paid a premium price to buy a premium British built product that I hope he enjoys for many seasons to come. No matter what side he helms on...

Ever heard of Gilding the Lilly?
...Personally I wouldn't bother with em..ALL the Crew in Lifejackets..( carry a spare stowed)..keep the clean lines and as much weight (and drag) off the A-frame as you can...and carry a throwable lifeline instead.

Yes, all crew are always in in LJs, spare LJ and rearming kit & throwing line.all carried....however when I need to rescue some poor knocked overboard wafi, or mis-guided soul from a sinking Fletcher/Bayliner, tired cross channel swimmer etc..... it might come in handy.

On a more serious note, hi-jacking the thread somewhat....how many do or do not carry a lifebuoy - I've always considered having one on board an important bit of safety kit.

PS I agree will all the earlier replies and went for the red one yesterdayphew, right choice). Apparently requests for a black one to compliment the boat colours have been made before
