Cool. Nicely co-ordinated, even your prop covers match.

I noticed that but didn't quite get the significance. Get three coats of Klear onto it, pronto. You won't be sorry, promise.

Klear

It's floor polish - details at http://www.scjohnson.co.uk/nqcontent.cfm?a_id=5996

By all accounts it seems that RIB tubes are made from lino

Ta for the comments - see you out there someday soon

Just one question why are the jockey seats staggered?

I'm just jealous as I have sold my coded rib, what are you planning to do with it?

Staggered seats means no knocked knees, more elbow room and better sight lines. And the navigator can read charts without upsetting the helm

Planning? Moi? As if!

Seriously, we get so many requests for rides that the only way we can do it and afford it is to take paying passengers; and that means going through the legal niceties. Better to be safe than sorry.

We do have something else up our sleeves of which more anon.

Is that a standard Humber console and jockeys?
If so how do you find the height of the jockeys to the console and the distance between them and the console?
Or is it the slimline version jockeys, with the same queries?
I have the large console on order with the hull but was going to wait till I had it to buy jockeys simply to make sure positioning and heights were going to OK before buying seats. Curious on what you think of yours if they are standard Humber bits.........
