Build thread of the Parker 800 Baltic UK demo rib.

In response to a few requests this is the start of the build thread for my next UK demo rib.
The rib which I ordered is a Parker 800 Baltic and will be fitted with twin Mercury Diesel QSD 2.0 (170 HP) and Bravo 1 drive. DTS throttle & shift levers and Vessel viewer 7. I had first decided on a single engine this being the Mercury Diesel TDI 4.2 370HP & Bravo 3 drive but having thought of it over a weekend decided to go twin. 2 x 220 ltrs stainless steel fuel tanks. Nearly double to what I had in the last demo rib.
The deck equipment as follows
Heavy duty military style Samson post on the bow (I had the same on my last 750 Baltic)
Neptune console with front incorporated bench seat. I like this console as it gives the crew good protection , storage space in the seat and a good seat as well even at 30knots on a calm sea you are pushed well into the seat without any danger of being thrown overboard
2 x 2 man Parker jockey seats
3 man bench seat on the engine box
A frame double stainless steel
Diving platform
Deck lights 4 per side
The rib will be all Military Grey
Radio & Navigation equipment:
 Simrad RS35 VHF/AIS DSC
 Simrad NSS9 evo 2 touch screen
 G4 radar
 StructureScan
 Sounder module
 P79 in hull transducer
 GS15 antena
 NAIS400 AIS Transponder
 NSPL400 antenna splitter dla AIS
 3dB 1.5 mtr antenna VHF

The engines are a bit late and will be delivered next week but the tube which is made in house is just about finished

Just a thought how many of you see what is under the deck of the rib you have just bought.
Every Friday I get photos from all the ribs I have on order so the Buyer can see first hand how the work is progressing. The CCTV shots are a great help as well as you get the date and the time

Id love to be able to spec and watch a boat build from the keel up that was mine, the best I can do is watch everyone's on here and just imagine the excitement.

Nice. Under deck, are there limber holes between compartments, foam, etc.? Or, is each compartment just sealed up when the deck goes down?

there is no foam. Holes yes should for any reason water gets there it can be drained down to the bilge. The compartments are sealed when the deck goes on. The deck is moulded. on the photo on post 2 you can see a protective cover on the deck.

Yep...looks good.

Me too...swing your Boat built is both interesting and most informative
In fact I'd say it was good practise for any reputable RIB manufacturer,in fact I'd discount any maker that flatly refused the option.
