Wow, that's a hell of a life ring holder you've got in picture 4!

What's all this about getting free birds with your Ribcraft? I didn't get any with mine nor any guns???

Thanks. It was one of those rare days when everything came together. The weather was perfect, calm seas & good underwater viz. We'd just done a dive & we chucked the daughter back in with her camera to take the pics. We had a good food haul as well & ate royally that night
The tower is a Ribcraft special, I've seen a few others on here but I cant remember who.

I agree, it does look to sit low, but if you look at the side on photo, the tube end cones are above the water, as is most of the tube below the rubbing strake. I think it's the angle of the photo due to my young'un being in the water. We actually have more freeboard on the transom with this boat than we did with the previous 5.85, despite the 2 lumps & 3m of stainless scaffolding
