Good call
To be honest you would want the electronics more amidships, they would get banged about too much in the Bow. Also if you have a subbass with a 100 hertz hi pass filter then you could get away with 8 or 10 inch which would be an easier install on a 4.7 metre rib

Take the cowl off and put the record on the fly wheel, MeMe will have to go a bit faster than the rest of us to get his 78's to play at the right speed but you will be able to go all day with an LP playing. Apparently you get 33 and a third LP's to the gallon!

Possible Solution : iPod

An iPod and a good pair of 'phones is all you need! You can listen to whatever you want at whatever volume you want then...

From what I hear car cd players and ribs don't go to well together. I am going to get one of these and see if there are any good.

www.myirock.com

(item called beamit)

It is an FM transmitter which will plug into your choice of output be it Ipod, mp3, personal CD etc. This transmits 10-30 feet to the bog standard radio/speaker set up that you have installed.

This way you can keep your ipod etc in your pocket or out of harms way and save having to buy expensive kit for the boat that may get wreaked in the elements.

Apparently they won't send direct to UK and I don't know what the legality of this is?? Anyone know before I get myself i trouble?

cheers

Music to my ears

You boys and your toys........ You should just be content to listen to the roar of that two stroke throbbing away behind you ripping big holes in the sea and spewing out noxious oil pollutants....lol

!!!! I love the smell of 2 stroke in the morning !!!!!

You will find all you need <at bargain prices!> on ebay. Waterproof speakers at about 12 each, waterproof covers for your stero about 20.

PS. Not all 18-year olds race around playing loud "modern" music. I am 17, and driving around in my Peogeot 205 with RIB on the back, there's nothing I like better than a bit of Courtney Pine Jazz!

Yeh, but watch out for this. On some speakers, where the voice coil tails come through the cone and attach to the flexible cables which link across to the chassis, make sure this is fully waterproofed. It doesn't take long for a drop of salt water to corrode them through. Been there....etc.
