New custom SIB build (5m workboat)

We have started on a new build this week, a combined safety/workboat.

The base craft is a Quicksilver 530 heavy duty, originally it was going to be in green but time constraints and stock have meant it is a red one (still, that should make it faster ).

We are, over the next week or so, going to be:-
+ Making up a bow cover,
+ Fitting two bow boxes for anchor etc.,
+ Making up a seat/box for batteries etc.,
+ Making up bespoke pockets to hold rescue equipment etc.,
+ Supplying safety equipment, tool box and signal gear,
+ Fitting a temporary A frame with antenna and nav light,
+ Fitting a temporary tiller outboard.

The boat will eventually have a stand up console and a remote 15HP four stroke (tuned down 20).

Step one - fully inflate the tubes without the floor so that layout can be marked and modifications to the floor panels made.

It would be faster still if you put flames on the side.

Hello...

Is this QS 530 a ply, aluminum, composite, panel floor sib ? Which one ? If aluminum can give you a interesting modification been doing down here to hold better; weight, mates, gear and of course a future stand up console. Once modified, holds better than factory delivered.

Happy Sibbing

We have now spliced in bridles fore and aft and attached a line to each.

The floor is coming on well and all the marking out is proving on the button.

It may not be as exciting as some work, but we really enjoy it. The finished boat will turn heads I think.

I am just worried that the flames on the side might melt the handles.

Can you provide a neat pic of any bottom floor panel to see. Are QS using lateral rivets to secure aluminum stripes/small boards to alum panel ?
