Ribcraft Maiden Voyage

Its finished!!
Took it to Hythe and saturday was blowing a force 7 so was perfect to test out a new Rib,

Really Really pleased with the results, conditions were exceptionally lumpy and it loved it, headed out to Hurst castle and the Needles to find some really bad stuff,

with a 06 Yamaha 90 and a 13 x 19 pitch prop it gave me 41 knots, a 55 litre in built fuel tank which actually took 70 litres which was a nice suprise gave me 0.8 litres per N mile in rough conditions,

Well done Matt - lovely looking RIB and sounds like it was a good day for a test run

Look forward to seeing it in person
