removable cuddy

Seems a really good idea. There really seems to be a lack of cuddy/cabin options for ribs. other threads seem to discuss some fast fisher designs or redbay wraparounds, but that looks cool.

New or secondhand?

Wireless, are you looking for new or secondhand? We promote our Eco XR24 for its fuel efficiency and a customer recently asked us for an inboard diesel layout with a cuddy. We've predicted the fuel burn for various speeds. There isn't a picture of that layout on our website www.eco-marine.co.uk, but we have put one on this thread: http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?...console&page=2

We're interested in everyone's views on cuddys or cabins on ribs around 7.5m - there are obviously several compromises to balance. Parker seem to have done a very neat job with the cabin on their 630, but it looks as though its too low to stand in and has a hatch over the helmsman's head - presumably so he can stand? Not sure how this would work in rough water. http://www.parkerribs.com/?page=models&id=2

that boats been updated a bit but my best advise is go and try it out on a rough day, cause you're going to get a lot of them travelling along the bits of coast you're talking about, you still haven't said what you're up to but if it's just getting from port to port every day i would look at a different form of transport, probaly motorbike

have you guys actually built a cabin/cuddy boat yet? i'm almost answering that myself by saying i'm sure we would have seen a pic or two by now if you had, my advise to you would be to work out how heavy that mockup cuddy will weigh and put the same amount of weight in one of your boats and try it, i've had some dealings with an older version of your boat and i dont think you have the displacement in that hull to take it, i would love you to prove me wrong, but it's a costly mistake to sell one one the back of a picture to find it don't work, i'm not knocking you, i'm just trying to give you the benefit of my experience, i think both andre and myself and ribtec for that matter (as i worked for them in the early days of cabin ribs) will tell you you can't build one of these completely on a computer, trialing and sometimes error is still a huge part of getting it right

Ill do that then ?

Regular commuting I can get a cuddy built in GRP etc. Second hand or a rib that needs doing up or even a new engine if needs be . To get round the solent on the ferries is exspensive .Last year I had to take the car on and off the IOW for a week 200.00 for the privelage. Solent roads in the summer are a nightmare.Yes I have looked at a motor bike but my tools wont fit on it. Yes I will try some ribs before deciding. Whats the ribs Seastart use ? something along those lines maybe? I dont know? Thank you for all the comments

the ribs that sea start have started life originally as ribtec's but they have altered them beyond recognition and now have there own moulds for what they have (hamble that is) and do there own fitouts
