I have to say, that's a really sweet job - although she's a "frankenrib" now I know the lads at HQ would approve. I've done a few miles on that boat and she needed a lot of love, looks like she got it. You may not be aware, but that boat originally belonged to the brother of the MD at Redbay. It could potentially be the first inboard RIB they built - certainly one of the very first run. AndyGee on here owned her for a spell and then she moved to Cornwall under Jelly's care. My involvement came when she was sold back to Ireland for service with the Basking Shark project. She's been absolutely everywhere over the years and it's great to see her set up for a few more. Looks like the original tubes? Amazing. Pic of us working her a couple of years ago:

Thanks for that. Yes I knew most of her history. She was certainly the first 7.4 inboard they built, here's a photo of her still in the factory. She's a solid old girl. I bought her from Emmett in Ireland at the beginning of last year and spent quite a few months taking her apart and putting back together again. Yes the tubes are the original. Quite a few hours work there trying to make them look new again!
