Mike you rib and allans have cost me a fortune.
Im interested in that boat as you can tell I have followed it for a long time.It has indeed got the right lines and was built as a rib for a job,not one to be sold for a proffit.
In fact I can say here and know that that boat is in my opinion the best looking Cabin rib in the world at present.
It was responsible for me wanting a Cabin rib all those yrs ago,I contacted Ribtec and Im sure became a pain in the bottom.
I was not in a position to buy then but I promised myself that one day I would as to me it represented the ultimate cruising machine.
The opertunuty came along and I did it.I actually dreamt of owning that boat of yours.
As I realised the implications and usability of it.
On the window debate,well I am sticking my neck out,Aint ever seen a forward facing windscreen that looks right.
If the boat doesnt look right then it aint as far as Im concerned,Widows leaning forward or back will pop just the same in a big sea.I have gone for 11mm saftey glass and they lean back as on Alans boat.
RCD will only be of interest if your developing a new boat and need to make sure it conforms to the new regulations for stability
