DHD kindly came down and wired it in about 3 days, a mate and I bolted the rest together in as many days.

Here's the result. http://rib.net/forum/attachment.php?...4&d=1211993391
Nice RIB Mollers

He is an Evinrude dealer so can probably provide a good deal on the E-tec. And I think he favours either Raymarine or Lowrance Electronics however I am sure he will be happy to fit anything you ask for.

If you want to see some other pics there are some on my build thread here

Speaking of good Etec deals, how does this lot stack up? http://www.ribstuff.com/component/pa...art/Itemid,29/

A load of tosh. Since when has anyone paid 17k for a 200 Etec? Or, when has one with 700hrs on it been worth 9k? A new 200 would come for that on a sharp deal.

Hang on, just noticed the new 225 for 7.5k, that's cheap.

The 175 price is about average, however the 225 they have on there for 7500 is a steal although I would expect that it not a current year probably an '07

There have been quite a few changes made in '08 such as new BIP injectors and ignition as well as a new gearbox.

I've just found a cd with some picture of an osprey Top Banana in a rough sea. If you want it I'll email you the pictures.

Gotchiguy,

AIUI, you will only use this boat when on holiday at your place in Brittany. Will you be keeping it inside or outside? If outside, then if it will be used relatively infrequently, I would avoid 'pretty' (i.e. light upholstery, losts of seats, sunbed etc) and go for something more practical/rugged (dark tubes/upholstery and basic jockey seats) that you will be happy to take a power wash to inside and out. Also something that will stand up to a knock or two without bits falling off. Also, unless you have money to burn, go second-hand and don't be seduced by expensive options that may seem great when buying a new boat but actually do not add much to everyday crusing and/or nothing or less than nothing to value. I'm thinking of - depth sounder (not really neede in a 6m RIB), expensive sound system, large/expensive plotter (if a cheap handheld GPS is all you need).

In other words, keep it simple. I'm sure you know this as you already have a boat but it's easy to get carried away by the lure of a new toy.
