New RIB into the water today

Ribtec 655 with Yam 150 ( OCA engine cover ordered)
The Outhill bench seat can have the back flipped over to watch astern for toys etc, or for camera crew to sit rather than previously standing, flomat flooring is new and will be interesting on how it works. All the usual extras, tri-lens mounted with Nav Light. Safety kit and liferaft

Totally agree - fine looking vessel - I wish you well with it.

Regards to the all round nav light fitting on top of the A-frame - I have not seen one like that before - as the actress said to the Bishop

All our boats have had the Tri Lens fitted on the Aframe and up to now we put them on a seperate bracket at some cost to me. When I was tasking the electrical guys with the last fittings I had already lined up the fabricators for the following Monday and that included another Tri lens support to the side of the Nav Light and to raise the nav light.

The guys at Aztec at Hamble who have been great saw the tri lens and said they could take nav lens off, extend the cable and feed through the middle of the tri lens, no need for fabrication, just two fixings (unit supplied with one) and rewire the nav light.

I use both and they are made in the same factory by Ribeye. This is aimed at a particular market , no other reason, I have used the 650 for two years on charters but changed up to larger units with the 785's which are coded for twelve (over the threshold for VAT issues).
