Meeow I was implying that the Scorp was a superior make of boat to that of a ribcraft mainly because Biggles will be along in a minute and take the bait, instead you did

What we are really waiting for of course is Nick, imagine the finish a professional could achieve on a rose wood dash

Pete
Ah but what it goes to show you is that the RIBCRAFT doesn't need any of those old fashioned materials like wood to keep it afloat, like your average Scorp seems to need....

The engine was replaced last year, so that could be a good reason. Also i havnt had the chance to full throttle it yet to see if you get your fingers jammed as its a been at least a force 6 here since i got the keys >:O( and today its a no go at force 8......
And as for the wood, soory nick it has to go>>>>>>>>>>>>>stainless steel sounds good ..
thanks

Nowt' wrong with ribcrafts!!

If it were my boat I'd get a nice bit of plastic/carbon fibre effect sheet cut to size, with perhaps something engraved on it. These guys are the ones I use (they did my Osprey pannel, and quite a few other pannels for various things) Very good service and reasonably priced. They do all sorts of materials including plastic and stainless:

The pannel they did for my osprey (very nicely done):

A cheaper, and quite easily achieved solution would be to shape the plywood better (eg rout off the edges with say a 4mm round bit) profile it tidily in plan, fill in any core voids (along the edges) prime, and spray in matt black. If you do it properly, it will look like it was meant to be there. Also has the advantage of being fixed "blind" from the back so no visible holes.

"Carbon fibre effect" ANYTHING is for corsa driving chavs IMHO!!
