old hand, new thinking

new to ribnet, just posted some pics of my boat and a few ideas that i have built into it, the boats my own design so at the moment it's the only one. the "bumper" saves the attachment strap damage and the fuel filler make a good towing post

Lovely boat mate. Like the 'bumper', ours god scuffed up on a pontoon when someone left alongside us and tied us up again very poorly.

Wouldn't tow from that bollard if its only screwed into the deck though.
What engine have you got in there?

you're right the hull is a coastline, i work quite closely with them, i,ve worked for a load of rib companies doing ribs and found for me that this is a good hull so i bought one and developed everything else you see, but beauty isn't only skin deep the layup in the hull is also completely different including two sets of stringers more bulkheads and different engine bay flooring and bearers
