Enjoy!

Like side by side jockeys. If I ever change boat (probably as a result of a divorce because of boats), it'll be side by side. In the interests of fairness... available on a Ribcraft 5.3m and Ribeye A500.

I've got a choice of honda or mariner lying in the workshop the lighting board is a temporary measure when the a frame arrives in 3 weeks time there are waterproof leds going on the trailer and the a frame this is a must as i hate lighting boards these bloody things are the bain of my life there is a garmin 45dv going on it just now pretty much its getting the bare minimum to get it out on the water there is also some more rollers going on the trailer as well just need to make the supports and send them for galvanising i know the boat should have straps on the transom hoops its not ideal but it was necessary till i get it all adjusted the jockeys side by side was fairly snug you wouldn't want it any less room put it that way. its 6.25 in the morning time to get breakfast and then start making some noise

Going to be a busy day then....... Best of luck.
I just did the wheel bearings yesterday for the trip, like a drooned rat when I was finished.
Hope the weather's a bit kinder to you today and maybe see you Friday

Breezeblock, take your time rigging, don't rush it. Mock up the console. You can download templates for most things now, plotter, throttles, helm, gauges etc. Print them out & stick them on the console to get everything set out. The helm should be slightly offset to the left/right of the centre line of the helm seat & the throttle offset similarly in the opposite direction, assuming you're using top mount throttle & not side mounted.

Do you mean you are mounting towing lights to the boat A-frame?

PS - Keep the pix coming ! New boat for me next week, but arrives rigged.

Looks niiice!! Can i see hatches in the side if the seat pods?
How does that work?
Dont the seats lift up for easy access?
Does he driver get a back rest?
Are the pods and consol still screwed down or are they now an integral part of the deck?

Get thise straps off the toobs!

Hi Breezeblock,

When rigged with engine, fuel, anchor & chain, etc... will she sit on an unbraked trailer? - my RC5.3 needed a braked trailer.
