"Lunasea" New RC585

Finally, after months and months my new boat "Lunasea" has arrived - well at Southampton Boat Show - if not quite yet onto the water.

Still a couple of final items to be fitted- radar reflector, drybox cage and lifebuoy/danlight to be added to the A-frame.

Now can't wait to pick her up after the show and run her in

That's a bit tasty what size is she?

And what are the screws/bolts on the aft face of the console for?

Hi Wilk,
She's 5.9m. The screws on the rear of the console hold the electrical panel with the circuitary, isolator and fuse panel, from memory. Will be fitting a cargo net to aft console face to hold the vital bits and pieces, - notebook, chinograph spare killcord etc...

Have fitted a pair of digital multi-gauges insstead of analogue dials, so looking forward to playing with the data from them.

The Redbay 9.5 Stormforce cabin rib looked really good.

Hi breezeblock,
Thanks.
They are the new Suzuki multi-gauges - and a late - in fact the only change to the original spec as they've only recently come to market.

A bit more expensive than the three standard analogue gauges (trim tacho and fuel gauge) - the last of which is pretty useless due to shape of tank-, but will give digital revs, speed, fuel burn info etc...

I could have routed some of the engine data to plotter, but then I'd lose much of the screen for data - I prefer to use the full screen on the plotter for navigation.

Is there any particular reason why you have opted for the helm on the starboard side as using the throttle lever with your left hand you will have to use your little finger to control the trim button. With the helm on portside it is much easier to operate the trim button with the thumb of your right hand

The Suzuki throttle can be re-handed for left hand operation👍

You only end up using your little finger if you're holding the top of the lever, which I find gives very poor control especially when things get a bit bumpy.

On that setup I'd be holding the control lever from the side with my hand braced on the base. Then you can use the inside edge of your forefinger for the trim.

I still prefer a right hand throttle though.

I've had both left and right hand mounted and I MUCH prefer the Throttle mounted on the left!..we are all different and you gotta be comfortable,but..I've found ....In ROUGH Stuff for extended periods when your getting thrown about,and it's pretty physical ....you can brace on the throttle base ( and still operate the throttle from its base and trim from there with ease.. Whilst still bracing with a FIRM hold and more control ) and still have the steering wheel in your RIGHT hand (STRONGEST for most people) to hold on AND BRACE too!..for me there's simlpy no comparison...IMO it's not a good idea to get used to holding/using the top of the throttle at all...(always the mark of the inexperienced)...one SLIGHT bump/slip..or someone knocks you and wey hey...your at full revs!.. which for For you AND/OR Crew may be far from ideal

Good points M I agree with them and the fact we're all different.

Congratulations on a nice RIB - I was admiring it at the show on Friday.

Throttle on the left - the comment left me pondering. My Pacific 22 has the throttle on the right. It's so stiff I have no choice other than to use it right at the top but, in my case, it is also the mark of the inexperienced.

The Halmatic Pacific RIBS - 22 and 24 have the throttle on the right and the Atlantic range of lifeboat RIB's - 21, 75 and 85 are also on the right but interestingly down at thigh height.
