Zodiac 733 in tropics

I bought a Zodiac Hurricane 733 from a Ribnet forum member and we add some modifications for tropical conditions. The boat is in Thailand.

We added the anchor locker in the bow, a t-top and boarding / diving ladder.

Yes, I know that bare stainless steel will be better. We will order the light color tube covers and try to live on the boat for a season. Maybe repaint later.

Put the engines and finished the t-top and seats. I had to use the black fabric instead of light gray. The grayish fabrics looked very wrong.

Awesome boat.

The covers should work, painting newish tubes would be a shame.

If you want to lose the black tubes, I'd be interested. I'm not in the tropics
