ribcraft 5 mtr

Its Finished!! well for the factory that is, it was almost ready to the minute!! turned up at 2 pm at it was just being pushed out from the cleaning dept!!

A big thanks to all the boys at Ribcraft(Mark, Dorian and Jace) for a f-----g superb job, attention to detail is superb and looks better than expected and bang on time too!!

I was looking at their new seat construction, they have now changed from the old wooden base to a purpose made plastic unit with a new foam insert,it never rots!! underneath the seat now has a heavy duty rubber seal that perfectly matches the seat base upon closure

Tomorrow i'm going to get my mates tig welder out as mine is knackered and have a go at the A frame,it cant be that difficult!!

Hi Matt - hope the heads okay this morning

Your new toy looks utterly cracking - I'm still living with the excitement of my first ever RIB - can't imagine what it must feel ike to actually see your own one built from scratch - fantastic

Looking forward to seeing the first "afloat" pictures

Jxx

Simple and sensible, why aren't all manufacturers doing it?
