On the face of it, you could reasonably compare those photos...

I think we have better scenery though

There are only so many thing you can do with a boat before they look like someone else's, they're sharp at the front and blunt at the back.

I would like to see a smallish rib (outboard) with a full width front cabin to sleep two, two single jockey seats and a rear bench seat that folds out into a bed. With the use of a tent/tarp that would join from the cabin to the A frame to make it an all enclosed four birth.

If you could make the single jockeys so the back rests can be turned around and have a table in the middle of the seating for meals or evening chats either under the stars or undercover with the tarp on.

A second battery that would run a cool box and lighting that wouldn't run the main battery down.

One of those gas powered stainless steel BBQ's that hang over the side, maybe near the helm position.

Toilet? I don't really like them but a sea toilet option would be a good idea, at least then you could use the rib anchored in a bay for the night.

A diesel heater (as poly said) would be good too.

There you go, nailed it

You don't want much do you, only dr who could achieve that, what about Neil's boat, I know it's work in progress but he wants the rear seats out and a bench put in this year, that only 7.2m, I know you want it smaller

thanks paul

I've never had a go in a Redbay( open to offers ...I'm sure there are flights from Southampton...)

Of course theres a green tubed one I hear may be winging its way to the solent soon

The thought of chatting to whisper under the stars ( or a tarp! ) - just us at anchor miles from anyone - makes me feel jittery.......his response is based on hours of day dreaming while the rest of work ( ish)

You forgot to mention what colour you would pick for the upholstery ;-)

I'd like a half cuddy/cabin that gave you an open rear deck space & good shelter for the helm, a couple of Ullmans & a for'ard sleeping 2 berth cabin in the bow (with heater) Maybe a folding door on the rear of the cuddy that could be fixed open in good weather so as to keep you in touch with the elements as it were. Not too bothered about a loo, that's what buckets & the sea are for. Somewhere to make a brew would be a nice to have.
