My (not so) new RIB

Guess I might be a little busy for a while
Just back with my new toy. As you can see I have a little to do, but at least it fits in the front garden, just! Not a lot of room for two though. Now which shall I use for the week-end

Matt,
Having towed it nearly 200 miles yesterday I have to agree about the trailer, and it looks well built as well.

Yes, those are the two words that worry me, "many" and "hours"
I think that the picture is slightly misleading, but I will check the offset when I can work out how to get the engine lowered
Hopefully not setting a theme, but the upholstery and treadmaster are going to be grey, unless someone comes up with a better idea
Still looking for a good name
