Looking harder that one does look a tad bigger than mine - the 'space' in the bow seems to be tad longer ( big enough to get a hatch in a 3.8 but not in a 3.5..

LED lights , tidied cabling on deck, compass , fuel bladders ( 80 l total capacity if needed), cover made to fit (inc light pole hole), trailer tweaked for a better fit and bow retaining v fitted.

I only do this stuff for enjoyment, but really want this to a good little RIB.

Thanks to those who have donated the little bits that make the difference

I hope to list the bits I have cluttering up the garage as free stuff on here shortly.

Just waiting for seats back - Proper test next weekend & then potential Scooby meet over bank holiday.

Happy for anyone to have a play RTI ( assuming I get that far ) for a dontation - much like I did last year (5 per Ribnet boat I've driven) - how about 5 donation and anyone can try it out RTI ?
