Have been lurking for a while and figured I should join since the new toy is on it's way.
Have finally pulled the pin and bought a RIB, main use is to take the kids for runs in the harbour to explore beaches, do some fishing, tow the kids on tubes and as a tender for our 38" yacht when we go cruising several times each year.
So it's a real multipurpose boat
As it will need to be towed behind our yacht I did not go for a really large RIB, rather a Grand Goldenline G380EF (new but older shape to the current one) and will be fitting up a new 40HP Mercury outboard.
I was lucky to be able to change the console for a larger one to allow me to install an A67 Plotter/Sonar, VHF and Fusion Stereo as I like my gadgets
Any advise on fitting out RIB's?
The new boat is basically an empty shell and I'll be doing the fit-out myself over the coming weeks. Will hang and connect the motor myself but have the dealer pre-commission / check & test before the first launch.
Cheers & look forward to learning heaps from those more experienced than myself.
