Another example of a selfmade cabin.

Scorpions have a large deck flang inside, like the inside of a bath tub. Instead of fixing to the tubes i did wonder about starting on the deck flange so the cuddy/cabin didnt rest on tubes. Then it would swoop up to console height. I worked out a cougar p1 deck would fit very well. I suppose a bit like. Few of the old fabio ribs. I'll take some pictures to help

Our cabins don't rest on the tubes. If you let the tubes down the cabin stays where it is. It has a couple of benefits. 1 you can't rip the tubes off. 2 you can run with the tubes deflated for almost half the boat if you couple it to the engine box you can deflate the tubes altogether

This is my ongoing project RIB, I am modifying the cabin to make it more usable.

I remember looking at that boat when it was for sale at Sparkes a year or so ago.

I went to look because of the cabin and the inboard Diesel, but decided to stick with my Ocean instead.

Good to see somebody took it on, as I remember the cabin was 'crawl in' height, and I thought about cutting the deck out inside it to get some extra space.

I Have totally gutted it and am extending the top upwards enough to enable me to sit with my legs flat on the floor and have reasonable headroom. I have rebuilt a Castoldi jet thats going on the back and a 275 bhp BMW 3.0 TDi to shove it along.

That engine space is enormous! How long and heavy is she? A 275hp diesel seems like alot of power.

A lovely guy from the Netherlands (I think he posted on here as MarkM but haven't seen anything from him for a while) has/had a Scorpion with a closed bow. I think he modified it himself. I think he did use it for sleeping in. I'll see if I can find a piccie to post.
