Hi all
Yes its my first rib project and did think it was to big to handle but i like a challange, i been around jetski speedboats and cars for quite sometime and not shy of getting my hands dirty. The project might be a to big for me but someone with a bit more knowledge of ribs, and it will cost a bit to much for me and will need to fine a bit of a small project alot of the bits there
Cheers kevin

Lol haha shinyshoes yes 5 seats would be a start it was more the length of the boat if i got one needing work i would put seats into it. I been a few times to arran with my mate in his rib, who has been to a few other islands but mainly its been loch lomond and the forth for me and i feel that about f3 rough water is enough for the wee person
Cheers kevin

we've seen some really lumpy stuff on loch lomond over the years, remember sitting with Jeff Hutcheon watching our 16ft boat disappearing in the troughs on the way back from the pub, it was on a visitors mooring at Milarrochy Bay camp site, glad we weren't sleeping on it that night
