Yup one of the last pictures I got was of a very deflated rib having holes cut out left right and center! So she fits in the shop.
Yeah I had the 170ltr one put in then at least I can get a reasonable cruising range or go to france and back without having to refuel in france. French fuel is a tad more expensive than I pay in Guernsey. Also having to spend your morning queing up at the fueling pontoons can be a chore, so the less I have to do the better.
One of my mates has just sold a four year old tornado and the tubes looked in top condition although I have been warned to keep the boat cover on, even if it might be a pain in butt at the end of a long days diving or else the colour does fade.
The electrics are a DSC Icom radio and a colour Garmin GPSmap 178c Sounder. I didn't want to go over the top with the plotter as I know my way round the Islands quite well and is just used mainly as point of reference for dive sites, however the colour sounder part is superb and makes the world of difference to the old B&W one I've got on the other boat.
All the upholstery is black........could it be anything else!?!
I'm forgoing the dive rack for the moment as they take up way too much space when you have 4 divers all trying to get kitted up and all the crap that they take with them! Whilst I agree that it saves tanks bouncing around a sleeping mat and a couple of decent sized weights either side seem to do the job. I reserve the right to change my mind in a few months though and have a stern rack put on!!
The opti from the picture looks bloody enormous as it is!
I'll do some more photo's when I go and pick it up, which looks likely to be this Friday. I'll spend the day zooming up and down the solent and then when the lads arrive on Saturday morning we'll head back to Guernsey. Hopefully with not too much of a hangover!
