Great stuff Philpot. For moving my motor around, I found it easier using a cheap, slightly modified two-wheel dolly. Added a board appx 6"x 10"x 18" to mount engine on. Also added a 1 metre hinged leg at back that forms a sort of tri-pod which keeps the engine vertical while either mounting on the two-wheeler or removing to put on transom. Works great.

With all the additions to the transom, will you need a ballast tank at the bow? seriously, job well done and great finish. Thumbs up from me.

You could be right as I have not even started mounting fishfinder or rod holders yet.

Just use the ones from your Jackson kayak. They have only seen the water twice I bet...

I think I hit a nerve!! Unlike your kayak career hopefully you will use this boat and then give advice. Always trying to get into a manufactures pocket our Phil, I've seen him do it so many times over the past few years. Buys a product, pushes it like crazy, gives loads of advice but never gets it wet! A true land based mariner..
Take his advice with a large pinch of salt as the craft he is advising on has probably never left his back garden..

I have bought the Frib but no problem if I offend you, I won't bother posting anymore.

I used the Jackson plenty of times, just don't know where you get your stupid ideas from and just so you know this, I have had sibs and ribs for over 40 years so I think it is fair to say they get wet and have a little knowledge on them but I'm sure you know better as usual.
It was your attitude that got you thrown off the North Wales Kayak Fishing forum

I hope you do keep posting about your experience and thoughts on the F Rib philpot. I for one have been holding off getting another type of boat until I find out more about this type.

There are a lot of others giving positive feedback on your posts too .so dont let one negative feedback put you off

I have not had my SIB in the water since september..so certainly wouldn't expect or hold it against you for not using yours in mid January

Keep the posts coming..at your own pace

Great Job Phil. poly marine or STA bond is good. I found hh 66 glue works well to and its 1 part instead of 2. personally i think you need to fix a hole when deflated, you surely cannot inflated while air is pushing against the glue to come out. As per accessory patch i do not think it matters deflated or inflated.
