Only got a hull so far + a couple of jockey seats

Visited the Ribcraft factory today - to make a couple more alterations to the boat spec.

I got my first look at my boat which unfortunately still has a long way to go before I can pick her up...

Yep - your looking at plain old naked plywood there...

Im not sure if they flowcoat the plywood bits you see - the non slip deck is applied directly to the ply i think.

Its covered with a resin then they chuck loads of little resin balls all over it let it set then sweep away the ones that didnt stick - it then gets painted.

The end result will look like this except im going for dark blue tubes.

I really like those handles on the back of the seats. Excellent feature me thinks.
