Build pics of my new Ribquest 7.3m

First pics of our new Ribquest 7.3m hull ready for tubing - I'll keep posting new pics as I get them (I found the same recent post for Domino very interesting) - boat will be displayed by Ribquest at Southampton Boat Show before we take delivery. When finished will be fitted with a Suzuki DF200, 4 winged jockey seat, rear bench (family friendly !) etc etc. Using a Ribquest 6.3 right now with a DF140 and am very very impressed.

Looks nice already.
I thought that the other day Chewy, I've heard of a few people on here and up this neck of the woods getting a new RIB. Hope the good companies in the RIB world go from strength to strength.

You should be able to get out wed/thur forecast, good, force 3 sunny on the menai straits. After that, time to buy a new rib with a cabin just to keep the sun from burning to a crisp.
