Twin fuel tanks ratcheted to deck. There was a fixed stainless 120 litre tank here originally but it was too heavy to carry to the garage.

David,

I heard recently of an American rich-men's club which had T-shirts printed bearing the message:

......"He who dies with the most toys...WINS !!"

Your RIB looks like a fabulous treasure-trove of instruments / gadgets / tools etc... - and all sensibly stowed so as to fall to hand / eye when needed - I am impressed and jealous, since my new purchase (see 'Navigation' thread on main board) does not even have a compass (yet!!)

I am also very impressed with your on-deck fuel stowage (see thread "fuel tanks") - even more so since you have moved from a fixed to a portable solution.

I wish you a huge amount of safe fun with this very business - like set-up.
