Hi CH. You've forgotten one of our previous conversations. The engine is at the back. However, bloody slowly is the answer to your question. Everything which could get in the way has got in the way, including 3 weeks redoing the kitchen. Finished the second tank tonight. Got another one to make. My hols start on Friday so I'll be pished that night but it's to be a boating holiday with a difference this year, starting Saturday.
When's the Alloy one due?

JW.

Nothing worth posting, but I did invest in a digital camera. I couldn't take your ribbing about it. You like the pun?

Did I say That?

Thats the way I also read it Powerboat.

A little bit of a generalisation I think,if we are going to be fair about it.

Maybe down to the exitment of the night Eh?

Seems you got loads of boats,Have you Got any funny charter stories for us?

I woudn't want it fixed, I'd want a new boat!
Once it's been cut, ground, and generaly messed about with, it's not the same boat anymore.
It should clearly have had knees in the begining, preferably from near the top of the transom down to, and tying into the longitudinals,(assuming it has any) with the floor fitted 'around' the sructure, not relying only on the floor 'as' the structure!

Morning all,

The RIB is rated to 60HP and although my current engine didn't come with the RIB, 60HP 2/ previously, my current engine is sold with the boat as a standard package on their pricelist.

The manufacture has been very helpfull in the past with other little problems - just hoping they are with this one.

Cheers
Daniel

I was talking about your problem to some mates of mine who are building RIBs (not in the country) and they have the same opinion as Jon Fuller actually.
They said that once the deck is cut it will not be the same original boat again. This should be your VERY LAST resort.
Is their opinion as well as mine that you should ask an expert who is building RIBs and once they look at your boat they will be able to tell you what is ACTUALLY WRONG with it and give you PROPER advise as to what to do next.

With all due respect to all, I think that the majority of people here (except from VERY FEW) are not experts on building RIBs or anything much really and whatever advise you get needs 3ple verification (trust been there, done that and unfortunately got the T-shirt ) but have learned my lesson.

Now would I get into trouble again??
