Very nice Whisper! Been waiting for the pics for far too long, looks fantastic with the Verado sitting on her tail

Nice placement of the rear grab handles for the rear pax and the fact there are no other grab handles means others won't be tempted to use them when rafting. Are you going to install a Sampson post ahead of the Anchor locker? I've often thought when anchoring it would be much more convenient than using the U bolt in front of the locker.

Is her name Whisper or are you still to name her?

PS: Be careful who you have sit on them lovely seats Alex, saw a 7m Humber at SBS a few years ago, the team were trying to clean "with limited success" red dye from their white upholstery after a customer got wet.

And what's the approximate cruising range?

To be fair, idiots will tie off to anything, no matter what.

I have very obvious stickers on the Ballistic saying 'DO NOT TIE TO LIFELINES' and one on a cleat that's exclusively for holiding the painter that says 'DO NOT TIE TO THIS CLEAT' (if you do, the warps rub on my tubes and I get quite annoyed) yet I still had to ask more than one person if they could read...

Sorry been out with my family today...

I was going to fit 6 grab handles in total like Nigel's but then decided just to have the 2 at the back.

The top of the locker has ply inlayed for a fitting so at the moment there is enough room to fit either a post or a cleat.

The wife and kids named her Whisper and I went along with it as it's easy on the VHF.

I had light grey seats on my last rib and never had a problem and at the moment they seam to wipe clean very well
