Something to think about if you fit these is the console design. Ergonomics rarely seems to be a strong point on production RIBs, but having a helm that is usable in both standing and sitting positions is even more of a challenge.

By the way, if anyone's interested I believe that the RIB is for sale.

You need to sign-up as a paid member to start selling things on this forum, or else you'll feel the wrath of the tyrant who runs this site or his duputies.
