I have been looking for a good aluminium welder for the last (3 months
) and I have found one
, I am going to build a 10-12m rib with a little help from Adam Younger.
The conditions the rib will be running in are on average 3m but get up to 4-5m with not much trouble, the rib will have no transom and be a self draining deck.
I am in two minds about Jets or surface drives; I can’t have stern drives as the sea creatures get in, on and around creating a major maintenance problem for me. If anyone has some pros and cons it would be great?
I plane is to put a list of everything I can think of on here in the next few days, everyone’s ideas would be much appreciated. Then is a letter to Adam and I hope to get the drawings underway within a month. Exciting times.
