New Baby

What a beauty .... You must be over the moon Graeme. I remember the excitement when we took delivery of our last RIB... the smell of the new glass and resin, shiny new tubes, great toys all over the console. I see you have 2 Garmins mounted, one would be the GPS, what is the other? Love the colour too, same as my last one I really hope you have a great time with her, and many safe passages. Its also time to come across this way.... BIBOA and I are planning a brilliant cruise taking in all the Channel Islands as well as some ports in France later this year. Everyone should try and make it.

This is what my console looked like:

RIB being built

This is a picture of my Trident (Hysucat) taking shape in South Africa last year. Note the stringers, made of highly compressed balsa = strength and light-weight. Two fuel tanks down the centre.

Thanks all for your comments.

Stealth - one of the Garmins (the larger one) is a 182 Chart Plotter. The other is a 160 Blue Fish Finder.

I like the look of your console - plenty of BIG toys there!

Strange to think of a RIB made of Balsa!

I would love to visit the Islands with her - Ill watch the BIBOA site for news on that trip.

Jools - that really was the weather on the Norfok Broads today - 28 Feb. You know what they say - the sun shines on the righteous

Hi Graeme

Fantastic.


I'm looking forward to seeing it (and you) in the flesh at the SoC sendoff.

Regards

Keith (Green) Hart
