Under deck holding air pressure (by the hiss as I removed the bung)

Engine starts runs and stops OK - power TT on a 25 - !

Seems the boat was vaguely local to me at some point - RIBS MARINE in Christchurch sticker on it , possibly sold to Portsmouth Sea scouts and then to Amersham Sea scouts under the name of 'Gentle Touch' ?

Hoping to get things sorted for a bank holiday run out/ RIBCRAFT fest...
Looks really nice Peter, can't wait to see it.

Rather than clutter up the thread - can the mods start a new thread form post 263 under a suitable heading ?

Thanks all - its homage to a several great boats - all SR4s ( chris C ) , Small Ribcrafts / big ribcrafts , Lilly of Lyme - anything orange ( not a rusty splitpin orange) .

Hopefully well have a fleet gathering soon - 3.5 , 4.2 ? 4.8 , 585 , 750
