My New 6.9metre Ally Hull Rib

Here's the new boat. No idea on the manufacturer, age or history. The chap I bought if from didn't have any details. It is massive, (to us anyway coming from a 5m Humber).

I've not measured the beam, (and can't at the moment as we left her in Wales, going back down for August bank holiday weekend, out Sunday and Monday if anyone is out and about).

140 hp tohatsu on the back. He told me there was a100 litre under floor fuel tank, but I suspect its bigger as I got 100 litres in it and it wasn't empty.

I reckon I'll need to work out how to carry more fuel, but for now I just want to play

Very discerning choice of boat neil, do the tubes actually go down and then back up again as they flow to the rear or is that just the photo? looks pretty big, going to be some long-distance cruising in that big boy

Yep she was definitely lurking there, waiting for me lol. Yoyo spotted her and guessed earlier in the Moelfre thread. I've heard good things said of the twatsoo, not a brand more agricultural etc, but reliable and that's what you want I guess

Hi paul, I think it's more the photo. The tubes are huge and will slide off for maintenance etc so there is some sag. I've still not really seen her on the water as I was obviously on her, but Chris at ty calch, said she looks well but does sit on the tubes, which straightens everything out. Does make her very stable

I thought the same thing.

Nice looking rig though. Enjoy!
