Ryan,

Positive. Full width extension.

The engines are too heavy for the standard ZH alu bracket.

I plan to order a new tube set locally. I am not so sure that it would be easy to extend the Tubes. I will test the boat with the tubes I have and see the results.
a new Tube set is expensive even in Asia.

Great looking rib! I just sold my ex USA special forces Zodiac Hurricane 733. It had a Volvo Penta AD41 and as you know the hull was as solid as a rock. I ran it for 10 years with very few problems.
The only reason I moved on was I fancied a change, I've never been in a more comfortable rib in 25 knots + winds. I will miss my 733!

Hello Scooby Doo,

Thank you so much.
Your Arctic Blue looks good and the bow ballast tank is a clever idea.
Maybe my next RIB will be a stepped hull boat around 9 meters.

The two boats are so different yet both excellent in there own ways. The Zodiac was so planted and the deep V and weight gave a great feeling of security. I had mine out in some pretty horrendous conditions and never had to change my underwear! It went 32-34knots but did that in almost any weather with no fuss, it was a really great boat.
The new owner is going to use it for towing a large classic racing yacht which it will excel at. Mine wasn't as sexy as yours, allot more utilitarian!

I don't have any pics with me here, once I have I'll post some up.
