Nice job Paul

I saw the boat at the show yesterday.
Those tubes are tapered, and shaped in more than one plane.

Must have been a bugger to get right.

I went along today and had a mooch about... my wife an I were very tempted by the Fletcher range of boats (not RIBs), but over lunch we decided and agreed that in fact a RIB is so much more practical.

It surprised us how cheap motor boats are when compared to RIBs.

Nasher thanks for the comments on the tubes ,we were supplied with some good info and they were surprisingly easy to make without the aid of computer templating ,very time consuming but all in all a very good looking workboat
