Thanks for the comments, much appreciated. We are hoping the large deck space combined with the hulls (yet to be tested) sea keeping and handling characteristics will prove a popular combination? Our aim is to acheive quite high performance (without the need to fit 250hp outboards) combined with a good payload capability in a boat that doesnt require a massive trailer and semi commercial towing vehicle to haul it about, thus keeping the overall costs down to sensible figures!

Meanwhile a couple more pics.

Now the dull stuff - these first two pictures show the fuel delivery and tank breather hoses exiting the deck in an area beneath where the console will eventually be fitted - note the raised moulded collars which helps to eliminate back flooding of the tank space. The second one is for steering, control cables and electrical looms to enter the underfloor services conduit.
The two circular holes on the centreline are where the rebated removable inspection plates will go, the forward one will permit access to fuel filler & breather hose connections and also the deck filler electrical bonding connection (to prevent static sparks between pump nozzle and filler). The aft one accesses the tank sender and pick up pipe - the tank also has a removable inspection plate to facilitate cleaning of the tank in the unfortunate circumstance of getting a batch of contaminated fuel etc.
The large rectangular hole is the access to an underfloor locker which will be accessed through the front of the console.

Thanks for photos and explanations Steve

The breather isn't my favourite item on our RIB, not a fan of petrol fumes
It's located on the console just by the navigator's's seat

Andy YHM, sssshhh!

Interesting comment from Louise about the common practice of simply venting fuel tanks out of the console - obviously the easiest solution - BUT not the best, or only one!

We will look in to the feasibiity of routing this one to the transom sump via our underdeck service conduit.

A particular interest of mine. Didn't think I'd notice petrol fumes on an open boat!!!

But too late for our RIB

P.S. missus' first name is kathleen second name mary third name ...oh you got the idea

I would be interested to know if anyone else has routed their vent pipe back down the under deck tubing and fixed the vent somewhere near the rear of the boat. I have two transom boxs which could be perfect for a vent but they do tend to get wet i suspect so not sure if this would be ok or not

will be interested to hear anyones views as i hate the idea of fuel and vapours venting into the middle of a boat!
