It runs

Quite sweetly too actually, and as can be seen it pumps water VERY well after I cleared the tell tale hole out again.

We're not sure now which cover to clean up and use.
Both the smaller Nashers and myself think the earlier cover which is a different colour to the rest of the engine looks better because of the contrast.

I've also now finished the repairs on the deck, which holds air well and the different coloured patches don't look too out of place.

Need to paint the transom, do some more cleaning, and get some more glue before adding some wear patches.

The lads want me to make up some stencils and add 'The Nippers Revenge' to the tubes in the same font as we have 'The Nashers Revenge' on the RIB. Does the flexible naming paint stick really well, or not? Bearing in mind the boat will be deflated and rolled up each time it's used.

The transom has fittings attached which are in the images, I'm presuming they are for a set of wheels.
Anyone know any different?
Or know what make of wheels they are for?

And another question for those that already run one of these boats.
We have a 12l and a 20l fuel tank that we'll use depending on circumstances.
Where do others place them? And how do you have them strapped down?

I sold my 22lt tank & got a 12lt one I strap to the transon its more than adiquot for a day out & if in dout & stick a 5lt ready can under the front bow bag.

Nice job!

Maybe best place for the tank is to have it strapped down under the bench, stuff tends to move around in this type of boat. I would use the original zodic wheels, but their expensive.
The one i had was crap, very difficult to detach when boat was in water.

IMHO there is a minor design flaw in the way the lower fastening point is attached to the transom(picture number 2). There is a seal for preventing the water to get in to the the boat
but the hole drilled into the plywood for the fitting does not have much of protection from water. I know its marine grade plywood but still would have designed it differently. I sealed mine with a tiny amount of sika after making sure the transom was dry.

Wonder would auto mobile vinyl spray paint work on PVC for lettering, maybe?

I have my 12 litre fuel tank strapped against the transom.

I have four lacing straps on the transom - I can't find a photo on the web, but they are the stainless equivalent of these:

With one webbing strap around the tank horizontally and one vertically.

Cheers

Big day tomorrow.

It's going in the water for the first time

Added the wear patches on the tops of the tubes this morning which covers the couple of Pin pricks on the Starboard tube.
For the time being we've decided to strap the fuel tank down where the seat should be located. We didn't get a seat with the boat so the mounting points aren't being used anyway.

The engine hasn't had a coat of paint yet, but that can wait until after I'm happy it runs OK out on the water.
I've changed the gearbox oil this morning and added a kill switch that actually works.

Not sure where to drop it in yet, may try Fareham creak tomorrow afternoon. We want somewhere sheltered as I'm not confident about the engine yet, and I want us to be able to paddle back if we have to.

You never know, after all this work on their SIB the smaller Nashers may let me have some time off to put the RIB in the water

If all goes well I'll be really chuffed, as without taking into account my time, the total outlay to date is under 500.

Well, that went well

The engine performed really well, and didn't miss a beat.

We went up past Porchester and into Portsmouth Harbour then back again before the lads went out for a spin by themselves.

After adding a bit more air to the deck, and raising the angle of the engine a notch, the little 9.9 got the boat up on the plane with the three of us in quite quickly, and without even resorting to full throttle skimmed us along at over 14 knots at one point. (Took the hand held GPS along for a laugh).
