You can e-mail or call. Be happy to asssit in whatever project you are working on.

I do have one more Valiant DR490 RIB in stock, Grey tubes. With an Evinride E-Tec 60hp. Jockey. Sister ship to the one above in the original posting.

Lots and lots of other boats too.

Just finished rigging a nice Searider 400 with jocket seat and Honda 40hp. Came out pretty sweet, so I built two of them.
