TCWOZERE had one, and I was very impressed. She had been fitted with expensive after market Outhill consoles. The tubes were superb and you really sat in the rib rather than on. Have a search on here, there are lots of photos of his rib. He did a couple of modification to the hull to fit a bilge pump which would be worth considering.
