Pics of Our New Excalibur Rib "Oisre"

Managed to stop tearing around and took some time out to take a few photos of our New 7m Excalibur Rib. The old boat is in there some where as well, still looks good when flying!! I am trying to get as vertical as Ronan but still havent managed it yet, well not for the camera anyway. Those of you who know Ronan will know what i am talking about (Best of luck to Ronan in his new business by the way, (went out on his own, Brave lad! ))
All in all very happy with the set up on the boat, especially when it comes to diving. Had 8 sets of gear and 10 divers the other day and she loves a bit of speed. Quality is superb and the lads in Excalibur couldn't have been more helpfull in accomodating our frequent requests. Thanks Joe and staff!
Rob.

Radar Mount

Thanks Codprawn,
There ya go! Thats about the best that i have the mo. There is a plate that runs across the top of the aframe and the bottom of the "pipe/tube" has a plate welded to it and they are bolted down with 4 bolts with 2 struts providing extra support.

Boat looks v. impressive!! Fitout and stainless work looks well. Any particular reason why the cockpit is raised? Is it to see over that high bow or just the passengers in front?

Will keep an eye out for ya blasting around the place, we're based in Crosshaven for another wk or 2 before headin "down west".

add the radar, and the fish finder system on the c80

Hi Swignn. To ans your questions. Yes on both.

Hi Codprawn. we got a rl70c and it has gone back under warrenty as it was "hanging". they said they couldn't find anything wrong but replaced the cpu anyway! also the colour "matching" fish finder has condensation in it already! I attach a shot of our console layout which we fitted ourselves) Radar has come in handy already a couple of times in fog. still getting the hang of it. Must read the manual over the winter!!

Yes I am going for the add on fishfinder module - suppose it would be criminal to have a set capable of taking radar and not using it!!!
