Introduction - me and my sib

Hiya all, I finally joined after stalking for awhile...I purchased a Zodiac MK IV a few months ago and have been going crazy rigging it up with all kind of custom goodies. I thought i would share some pics and get some feedback.
Hopefully i am not going over the top.

Before and After pics to follow...

Cheers, Tim

thats quite a difference. lot of work (and money) went into that i see.

curious though, is there a reason you didn't buy a RIB already like that?

cheers

Sweet! Post some on the water pics. I really like the light bar with the raised tow point.

For sure a lot of work! I do enjoy that part!

It all started when i got a great deal on the boat / trailer and the Johnson...($5,500 CDN) The Zodiac was new old stock...then i followed up with a good deal on the Yamaha 60 ($3,900), less the 100 hours. after that the good deals were hard to find. It was all the little things that added up. I think i am in it for a total of about $17,500 CDN. I wouldnt be able to find a RIB here even close for that price. Although now, i am want bigger and looking at a Hurricane 733. Ugg, the sickness!

Thanks for the KUDOS! So far i have clocked it at about 35 MPH with about 500lbs (2 guys) of fat in the boat...planes really easy and doesnt seem to matter on the payload for getting up on plane.
