It's about 1m across the flat deck the rear 2/3rds of the boat.

In theory you could cut into the void front and back to route under deck without too much trouble.

Well I found a warm shed yesterday and gave the tubes a good going over & thorough clean.

Here is her new home.

I'll probably finish this project off in 10 weeks time but it would rather suit me to sell as a "finish at home" project; see ad in bits & pieces section.

McMillan donor RIB

Thanks guys; I'm really pleased with it too.

This has certainly been a project for satisfaction not financial gain but he end result was worth it.

Tube cleaning is a combination of fairy power spray & a non-stick pan scourer (not a scotch bright as I have seen suggested) then hypalon thinners (toulene) on stubborn areas.

Oh and elbow grease.

Tony - The only console remotely ready to sell as any use would be the one in this thread. I don't really want to sell it until I know if anyone wants it with this boat in afraid.
