Will it foul the lid of the outboard when lowered?

PS
Nice to see you sourcing local produce

Very Pimp my RIB!

One thing that might worth a mention is that the Main Isolator switch looks a bit vunerable from a leg, breaking off the key and damaging your leg. Most fit these Isolators completely inside the console, oh and don't forget to carry a spare key.

Other than whats already been said, it all seems to be progressing rather nicely.

Oh on the single white light matter. Fix a crows nest to the top of the A frame and stick the monster up their with the light mounted on a Gekko helmet.

When you getting the RADAR?

OK, I've just had a look at the pictures again and see that you have a nice stainless grabrail there. I guess this would offer protection from arms and legs banging into the Key.

Perfect idea - thanks Andy

JSP - that looks like a neat solution to an extension!!

On mine no, as the top of the A frame can hinge down when I need to store it. Worth thinking about for KY though.
