Awesome SIBs, truly the King of SIBs. Never tire of studying these at our local lifeboat stations and open days.

Watched a few down the years and they can be picked up for very little money considering what you're getting.

What sort of performance do they give with the 40?

Mine doesn't "fly" but it shifts enough I think it would be great with a 50hp.

I have an A frame in the garage, I'm undecided on fitting it, it looks great fitted but I like the original look, what do you all think? Click image for larger version

Nicest one I've seen was on EBay last year - all the rare extras, trailer and Mariner 40 - didn't even get bid above 1700. Crazy.

Another lovely D Class on eBay

Fantastic, what a deal with all that kit.

Rude to ask how much of course...

What's the big white box of tricks in the bow and what are the round orange things?

Quite like the 'bare' look but the frame would be useful, should be easy to create a plug n' socket fitting on the transom so you have the choice?
