Nice looking piece of Kit. Where did you get the engine cover from?

Cracking boat Ian.

She ran up onto the plane a lot easier and sat a lot nicer on monday with just 3 of us on board so definately worth considering running with out the liferaft at the back to keep the stern out the water when not doing charter work etc or look at fitting tabs as we discussed.

Remembered why i like ribtec hulls again as it cut beautifully through chop with out slamming making or it hard work. Made me realise how uncomfortable some boats of similar size are despite their reputation suggesting otherwise.

Top choice.

Happy Ribbing

Graham

Cheers Graham. I spent a bit of time yesterday changing a few bits about and also putting a neutral line on the throttle base. I have talked with Steve to lift the raft off in a few weeks whilst it is on training but have not got it done for this weekend. I agree about the weight for training and free up space. Also we had a lot of water in the hull space (as you thought) so have closed the inner plug now and Biff is looking to add height to the tramsom. All this to make it easier for everyone and of course to keep your feet dry.
