You certainly seem to have all the skills my fiend!.
For a Home rebuild I think the Bar has been well and truly raised!..is it a Marine background you hail from?
Be good to see the finished product,power to you!

At what point does it make more sense to start from scratch?
A 10k total! ...(plus his labour of course)..which HAS to to be a Labour of Love!..for a Large-ish capable Diesel..Pretty much Custom Cruiseing RIB is a pretty good incentive

I dont want to be sceptical - but that has a bit of a feel of Grand Designs... I'm gonna build a 6 bedroom family mansion for 50k feel about it... ...only to be sitting at the end saying "Well we did go a little over budget but look how great what we built is..." with a little over budget being 300k. Still a bloody good house for 300k but a load of hassle building it etc,..

Yep...very possible outcome...but at the end of the Day...and to continue the House analogy,
AFTER all the Hard work and hassell they VERY OFTEN like you say..end up with a "bloody good house" for the money!.(.or in this case a RiB)
While alot of us more timid souls continue on the treadmill,and make all kinds of excuses NOT to take the Bull by the horns!...and look on with awe!....
That's why it make good telly!
I reckon your man here is truly Skillfull,and for sure will learn a lot more along the way,like he said it's his first RIB!.. I truly like,and respect his can do attitude!!..and I for one am enjoying the rebuild as it unfolds

To make this boat rebuild into 'good telly' we would need:
- some crazy plan... Perhaps a glass bottom?

- a contractor to fail to deliver on time / some other jeopardy

- some pointless commentator who reminds us what they are doing every 5minutes

So Mac, coming back on topic, that's a fairly big console. Looks like a small cabin area up front? are you planning to sleep in it routinely or just for emergency use? Will the floor level go below the deck level? are you going all domesticated with a head etc? interesting ttop too.

As usual all work stops for MotoGP, only qualifying but Rossi put in a great performance

Air saw came out this morning and the old console came off as well as removing the leg and engine. My little forklift comes in very handy for these sort of things especially when you are on your own in the workshop.

Maximus, yes marine background mainly but nothing to do with ribs up till this point however a couple of my friends are involved in this sector of the industry.

This started as just a project just for my own use but after people geeing me on it has evolved into something else as we build all of the moulds, if someone else wants one eventually then great but if not I am not going to lose any sleep over it.

Hehe, I have done one of the property programs !! I came in under HALF of my budget :-) That being said now I am just going to use the hull as a plug before cutting it up the budget has increased to 12k and I will be within that but remember I am in the marine industry so I do not have to pay retail prices.

Yes the new console I am making is very large, I am now going to be extending the hull out to over 9m as well as widening it slightly, increasing tube diameter, alterations to bow and chines etc etc. Seating for 6 people. Accommodation for 2 people, electric marine toilet, diesel heating etc etc for winter weekend adventures as well

Moto 2 qualifying is boring so I am going back to the workshop.

So if someone else wants one...

...you are bound to hit RCD issues.? Or were you just thinking the console?

Kin 'eck man! Why not just start from scratch?! All you're gonna be left with is a lump and leg from the 'donor'.

Not just the console, fully built ribs.
RCD issues ? I build to Lloyds SSC regulations, RCD and CE certification is a walk in the park compared with that 😎
