Ok arch is done, here are some shots bimini folded and unfolded.

Today I went out in some heavy rain and even without the side curtain up, stayed dry. That is a very nice thing in Oregon.

I need to take some detail shots as well. The fabrication company Samson has some amazing CNC machined parts for tilting the arch and disconnecting it etc. This is the first RIB they have done!! It's also a wakeboard arch and has the tow bit up top.

There are also some LED floods that light down and aft as well as onto the deck.

Radar, wind ammeter, VHF antenna.

You should shoot a video of how it handles that close chop. Plus the scenery in the gorge would be a great back drop.

Speaking of serenity

Speaking of serenity. Shot these at last night's weekly evening sailboat racing.

It had just dumped a bunch of rain. Bimini helped and I could get shots without getting wet.



More shots here

Well this is the wave/wind state in the summer in the same location as previous photo.

Good to have a RIB!! All the wimpy ski boats are all tied up for the summer except a few weeks of calm.

Windsurfer masts are 15' high. So that gives you some scale as to the "chop" we have here.

Ya, "chop" might not be the right word. Down where I'm at it doesn't get that big but we deal with dead heads and logs regularly. Not nearly as fun
