That has to be the best compromise between RIB and a hard boat - has a toilet but still a true RIB - looks great as well.................

cuddy two birth, sea toilet will fit under the in fill, we left the cabin floor open ended so skis and rods will push up under the fore deck, you can see the kit bag at the end in the picture, the cabin door and lid stow in the side of the wing, we wanted to keep it a real rib not a fairline with tube, so cabin is friendly, fine for the occasional over night, great for the kids to get out of the weather stow dry gear, and when spending this kind of budget on a rib the ladys expect a toilet.we also have the spray hood, clips to the winscreen which stops the rain lashing your eye balls on your way home in these lovely British summers !

Jim, I'm not being smart or cheeky but how do you prevent the cabin and hull from filling up in a stuff?

as you say if you have a cabin you have a big hole water can run down, the cabin companion way is a ft -33 cm from the floor and the slide in hatch a good fit, the floor climes aproximatly a ft higher at the bow which adds a some hight, we have 2 x 2" emergancy drains in the transome stright through from the floor also 2 x 1 .5 " floor drainers into a drain well inside the aft molding with twin auto pumps = 3000 gallons an hour, by removing a bung in the aft well the cabin floor also runs to this well and pumps out.
The deck is self draining with the boat empty or loaded moving forward, but with people on board at stand still the water creeps through the aft flaps and causes a small but anoying puddle under the aft seat so bungs are supplyed for the four drain holes. if you are going on a rough trip you can shut off the floor drains and let the stern drains remove the bulk of the water, and under normal conditions shut them off and use the pump well drains to keep the deck dry. hope this answers your questions.
