My 1st Rib

Well after talking to the helm & mechanic at local RNLI that i joined last year the steering issue was not a hard fix and im happy to say im no longer a rib virgin haha bought the rib i viewed other day, engine is in cracking condition, very clean, tubes not scuffed to bits, console has aftermarket hatches/hinged doors that aint too tidy &has that steering to sort but im looking forward to getting stuck into it.

Couple of pics:

Congratulations on your first RIB, looks good to me, now that you have your rib and no longer a rib virgin, you still need to take precautions or you may catch crabs.

All the best with her.

Could you not unbolt the back of the seat and just extend the base backwards with a "box" covered with a cushion, with the back bolted back onto to the box. Or were you thinking posher than a double jockey?

Zodiac pro 500

Hi this is my first post and I am hoping that I can get some good advice on buying a Zodiac pro. I have a Honwave 3.8 at the moment and I am now looking for my first proper rib so that I can explore further.
The Internet can only help so far.
