Jon congratulations.

I have pondered recently on a medium-longterm replacement for Evolution and the 9m Ribcraft is defiantly up there in my ponderings. A very nice boat. In fact theres some good shots of them in the Suzuki brochure. As Hightower says it looks like an incredibly beamy boat.

What colour scheme have you gone for?

Congratulation

Jon,

Good luck with the new venture, will you be having the raised deck at the rear as well. Also if you would like the telephone number where I hired my liferaft from (370 ish plus vat) per year for a 12 man liferaft including servicing etc let me know. Also what coding are you going for Cat 3 or 4?

Good luck

Richard

12 Man Solas B Liferaft for 350 + vat per year from these people. They are very friendly and easy to deal with. They also supplied me with all the coding gear too, and were the most competively priced company I found.

Cheers Richard and Tim,

Most if not all the safety kit will come from Ocean Safety.
Not sure to rent or buy the liferaft as yet.

Either way thanks for the info.

Oh and colour is grey hull (that was already made so no choice there) yellow tubes and consol, black patches.
