So far so good, everything as promised and up to a very high standard. Keel Guard I hope I never need, but standard on the Gemini 850 hull and certainly has some strength. Hope by end of next week to have completeed sea trials, prop changes and electronics ready for work then. Pics etc will follow

RIB almost ready, but extras and electronics and fuel feed took longer than we thought.
Power steering unit is awesome and can work as hydraulic as well.
Fuel seperation and stop switches secured and working yesterday. All instruments on finals with experts from Raymarine finalising today. Raymarine did a great job and travelled from Portsmouth to Devon just to help fully load links from E95 and I70 and AIS- nice to see their help as a new product and linking was always going to take time and then registering AIS and all systems on line
New Covers being delivered Monday and includes a new deck top to secure clients bags in the dry if needed. Final prop testing still to be done but looks like down to two at present-(things can change!!)
More images later I hope

I have added the Cobra wi fi link despite poor write ups by Nos, as whilst everything else was being wired I have added this and it leave a waterproof cap visible for me to connect if I want

The consul shows the layout just before lifted into place. The other two are seperate fuel stop valves for each tank so can work in line or with one or other switched off

Shows inside consul the power steering unit, the rear seat set up and then the boat set up. The deck wash out holes are massive so if we ever fill her then these tubes should empty the decks fast

Cos it's a Ribeye

Looks great Ian. I prefer it to the shape of the 785.

You see this is where others get hung up. The hull is a Gemini 850 waverider that has been manufactured with the wash well and added to Ribeye fleet as a Ribeye 850S ( I have the charter version). The hull layup is the Gemini system and strength. The tubes are thicker grade material, the metal work is stronger and thicker grade. The boat is manufactured for Ribeye in SA and then shipped to UK for their final fit out of electronics, seating, sonsul, and engine. After this perhaps I need them to explain their relationship with Gemini. Hope that helps
