Just saying hello

Hi folks, been enjoying others posts on this site for a while...thought it time to say hello!

This is my 2005 7.5 Ribcraft with a Suzuki 225 on the back. She is normally moored on the Isle of Man but is currently having a refit. Pair of Ullman seats, re-tubed, powder coated brightwork....industrial, stealth....black ops....I'm such a tart!

Will post some pic when done.

Let's see the outcome, looked fine already. We're the tubes knackered or were they just not "as you want"?

Thanks Pikey Dave, I think I'd experimented with how she was sitting on the trailer to try and reduce the nose weight a touch. Ive moved her forward again now as she was a little flighty at motorway speeds. But thanks for pointing that out.

Hi Maximus thanks for your reply. These 7.5's are rare, they didn't make that many before they flipped to their 7.5 sport hull but she's not one of there commercial 7.8 hulls.
