Thanks Tony. here are the latest pics - almost complete, just a few odd jobs and a clean to finish. Must say I have found Dave at Ribquest to be a great person to deal with and cannot recommend them enough.

How did it grow in size

Hi Peter
That boat looks jolly fine indeed.

How did it increase in size from the 7.3 to 7.8m?

who had measured what bit wrong!
cheers Paul

Trailer is not mine, just what Ribquest have put it on short term I think - the boat will be dry stacked and I never intend to tow it !

As far as why it has grown to a 7.8m it was an accident with the mould. Credit to Dave at Ribquest, the original 7.3m hull they moulded for us had a couple of defects in it (which I would never have seen/known about) which meant he was not happy to sell it at that time. In the mean time the mould was reset ready to make a 7.8m for the Boat Show - when they decided to remould our hull the shop guy forgot to reset the mould for a 7.3 hence we have ended up with a bigger boat - I'm not complaining !!

Ribquest

Peter,

Thought you might like to see this pictures of your boat from the boat show on Firday evening. I was on the new Redbay Stormforce 105 with my new shock mitigating seats fitted heading to the isle of white for dinner along with dave an josh from Ribquest.

Your boat looked superb in the water im sure you will love it (like the boat name - Aquaholic)

Cheers
Jonathan
