New Ribcraft 7.8m delivered this weekend

Just took delivery of our first Ribcraft 7.8, started running it in over the weekend, weather perfect for the shakedown and the odd photo. Ribcraft have done an excellent job and delivered on time. The tubes have the colour flashes cut into them.

Congrats - nice looking boat. Are those tubes Military or Neptune grey?


Hugh - you didn't happen to see a half finished 5.85 with Yam150 while you were there did you?

when i went on the thursday the workshop was full of boats, when i then went there on the saturday morning there were 4 left in there, one was the 7m, one was bright yellow, one had a suz 250 and another had grey tubes, i think one had the built in splash well round the engine in yellow or orange.

will see if i caught it in any of my pics for you

Boat looks great - hopefully my 6.5 should be delivered at the end of the month.

Just wondering which Garmin and Icom you have gone for as originally getting the 298 but think its been delayed together with the Icom 603?
