Is that your build Dave? Just this evening a friend of mine told me he was going to look for a new RIB in the 16-17' range... This is the guy who bought my old Mk III Rigid Hull, then sold it when he got married....

May I ask the approximate "drive away" cost? PM if you prefer...

Very nice! That looks like it should provide a very dry and smooth ride in choppy conditions.

Stoo: Yes, this boat is our build. We started with some requests for deep vee hulled RIBs about 5m long last year and put pencil to paper. The plug and mold were made over the winter and I have been busy building boats all summer. We do our own GRP and tube work in house. The arrangement shown in the photos went for around $20k. That included the 40hp ETEC (this one was new, old stock), bunk trailer with roller jack, 1670 dtex tube fabric, nav. lights, battery, 5 chamber tube, choice of console and seating, electric bilge pump, below deck cable routing, lifting points, towing eyes, paddles, inflation pump and repair kit. I hope that gives you an idea on what we do. If you friend has some ideas in mind for a boat we would be happy to prepare a quote.

PT: Thank you! I was "seriously chuffed" when we trialled this boat earlier this year. She lands quite softly and throws the spray down and away. Just what we wanted. This pic of the wet sanded plug gives you an idea why.

How do you like the E-tec? Also what is the max hp recommended for this boat? Also good to see that heavy hypalon is being used.
