530 Rib Rigging Cost

Hi Ribbers,

Was wondering what would be an estimated hand labor cost to install ; central console with 4 instruments + mechanical 13" steering system (drill 5 holes) + driver seat + engine control box + engine cables + Yam 60 HP on a 530 Rib ?

Happy Boating

If it helps I paid 500 to install a 135 Verado with hydraulic steering.

Obviously I bought the engine at the same time but the fella didn't do me too many favours on the cost so the install price was probably pretty fair.

Chris - did that include parts (battery, cables, bolts etc)? if its 'just' mounting and hooking up the engine it shouldn't take that long...

Loco - I would have thought for what you are describing it is probably a full day's work for someone reasonably competent? Obviously your local labour rates will be different to ours. I guess it also depends on whether you itemise the 'sundries' like sikaflex, crimp connectors and stainless screws etc separately.

Battery and steering is supplied standard with a Verado

I would guess you have not fitted many Verado's then Polwart. They can be fun at times

I think it was just under 500 for my 50 Yam, seat, console , big steelwork & Aframe & screen frame etc to be fitted to my avon about 3 years ago - that was not buying the big bits, but did include all the 'little' bits - SS bolts, sealant, trunking, battery box ,lights , instruments etc etc. All under deck - wiring up everything on the boat and setting up the trailer.

it should cost about 850 for a boat that size, we wouldn't supply the big bit as already said, but it should be put together using A4 nuts, bolts and screws, bolted where you can get at, screwed where you can't, cables all fixed down properly so they don.t shake loose, proper sealer for everything ie sikaflex for pods, engine bolts, aframe etc, silicone for clocks and fillets etc (silicone doesn't discolour), set the boat up properly on the trailer and sea trail then hand over

It took two people half a day to fit my Yam 55hp, that was mounting the engine, drilling and sealing the mount holes, fitting new cables, and drilling the console for control switches.

thats about right add to that the fitting of pods, console, steering, seat backs, upholestry, navs, a frame, when i worked at ribtec a basic 6m with frame, jockey console treadmaster, etc would take me 30hrs on my own, but when we worked as a team we could build and did do a camel trophy boat complete in a day

You would be correct. Sorry for the thread drift - but why is a verado any different from other engines in terms of how long it takes to fit it to the transom?

Obviously alot of time can be saved by having the right tools. When doing the steering on my mates boat I thought it would have been the same size hole cutter, it wasn't!
