SIB Coming On

Hi Guys,

Just thought i would share a quick pic of my 3.3m SIB and show bits and bobs i have added.

1998 25HP Yam, 2 stroke.
Single arch small custom A frame.
Front Ancor support.
Saftey boyd and torch.
Home made trailer.

All We need now it the weather.

Hope this helps other who wish to add mods to their SIBS.

What does everyone think of the SIB so far ?

Nice boat, huge engine!
I have an almost clinical obsession for bow covers and similar, can you please show us more of that?

Here is the Bow Anchor support.

Its just ply and covered with grey PVC material, hole for the anchor rope and anchor roller at the end.

Anchor rope is pulled up with a upside down pully with clam cleats which is attached to the bow floor board.

Its more just for the anchor as appose to a cover, works well tho.

Cheers.

Lovely! The grey pool noodle is a perfect fit and practical solution. How did you fix that to the floats? Will it be tough enough for anchor holding? Can you even step on it? Sorry for the questions, I have some kind of fixation with this. Last year I got a bow bag and it was such a bad design that I can't help thinking of replacing it.

You shoulda just put the 25hp on that horseshoe ring, its almost as big as the boat anyway!

Cute bow/anchor roller solution you got there.

I second the remote steering idea. Jockey console for sure! Transom wheels for easier launch what with all your extra toys?

The floats are acctualy just pipe insulation avalible for any hardware outlet cable tied to the ply. The Anchor support is strong enough to stand on and sit on and anchor holding.

Transom wheels are the next mod defo, no jockey as i need the space for fishing with two people. Bigger boat next season i think, better start saving.

Thanks for all your comments.

Cheers.
