Pride in knowing it's his work Need a mould to work from and as I have done many times sure the build has just run away with him

Excellent work puts my efforts to shame Sitting and awaiting more pics

Poly, you forgot the extensive underwater hull modifications that are going to take place as well courtesy of my Naval architect friend

I understand where you are coming from, once I am done there will be absolutely nothing left of the Ocean layout, mouldings, structure or even hull design so you need to think of me using it as a "former" to build my own design on.

That makes more sense to me now. That and hopefully the engine is a gud'un. Are you changing the hull to reduce the Ocean's tendency to break out in tight turns? I was wondering if the weight of the inboard would have countered that by itself. BTW, I've stood on an Ocean engine lid previously - it didn't inspire confidence - bit bouncy!!

Yes slightly "bouncy" engine lids are not the way forward, and I have no idea how they did it as all of the ply was dry but it also weighed about the same amount as a small planet !!

Engine and leg will be removed and I will fully check them out before re-installing. Has not done many hours since she had a refit with replacement engine a few years ago now.

There are quite a few things to change on the hull and that part will keep me busy for a while

Back in the late 90's Ocean had their original hull adapted by an architect to bring the hull you have now. A friend bought the first one and I thought the ride and handling was excellent. I know a guy who did RB 1999 with us in the same boat and it was faultless. Be interesting to learn what mods you make to the hull?

Ribsta, they did indeed however as she sits right now my hull form under the waterline is not eactly the same (had inserts placed in the mould from new when they laid up the hull that are not on the rest of the same design of hulls) as the rest of this revised design series from the new moulds they made and thats before I start cutting and adding so we will see what happens with the modifications that I make. There are lots of prototype systems to be fitted that are going to be installed from various manufacturers as well as in-house designs. Some of these are designed to work along with some of the hull revisions that are going to be undertaken.

Been a while since the last update, lots of other work going on and family duties so only just got back to the Rib. I have done some more work on the fuel tank but the pictures aren't that interesting really, once there is more to see I will post the pics.

You can see here some quick sketches showing the general idea, fancied a change from working on the tank area the other day so spent the afternoon making a start on the plug for the console mould. Lots still to do as its just the basic shape at the moment but once done it should prove a practical layout.
