The rest of the kit is easy in weight but we have had to discuss consul locations and liferaft location to get a good balanced RIB. The next decision was whether to have the craft in a cradle side on or cradle flat. I settled for flat to not place a balance issue of 40kg being bounced/thrown with forces created. Once I have the RIB loaded I will post an image or two
ok images as promised from launch today, still got a few things to do but shows layout and boat in general. This is not me as cold so engineer out!!!. But images show liferaft position to stern area and how else it has been finished of.
