ribquest

hi kerny ribquest was bought out by dave rose when they had probs, the business is under dronfeild marine in dronfeild derbyshire. The builder has a heart for his business and build quality second to non. the weight of the boat reflects the quality of build, made for rough seas. I will post more photos and info when she gets her belly wet cheers neal

I used to walk the dog past the factory every day and used to think: If I ever decide to buy a RIB this will be very handy. By the time I thought about getting one.....the bu****rs have moved.

Ah well, have to visit my parents and start walking the hound past Delta instead.

hi dave the 300 engine does come with icom, but is optinal (1200) extra. I,ve gone for the i-command system as its runs on a wiring loom, at least you can cut cable and join them if you have any probs,but not on a wirless system cheer neal

I think we might be at cross purposes here. Icon is the fly by wire throttle & shift controls, it's hard wired not wireless. I was under the impression that it came as standard with the 300hp. I-command is the instrumentation which is standard across the range from 115 up.

ps, good looking boat
