The long wait is over

Today I collected my new Ribcraft 585 "Voyager".

Needless to say I am extremely pleased - she looks loads better in real life than I could have possibly imagined and any worries I had about spending all that money on a boat were washed away the moment I caught a glimpse of her at the factory.

Well done - looks really good.

Having the console further forward makes for a much better balanced boat - looks very similar to the Ribeye I did my PB2 in the other day - that went very well with a smaller engine than yours!!!

Post some more pics and a write up of your first trip!!!

Its a 178C - I had a black and white 178 on my last boat and found it to be a great unit - so this time I treated my self to a colour screen.
