New RIB

Another little project currently in the BananaShark workshops - it's a very old hull that is having some tubes, new seats and a console fitted to it. The owner, current OCR British Champion Bob Mcarthy is doing a lot of the work himself, and it will have the tubes fitted next week by Paul Tilley .......... can anyone guess what it is, there will be clues eventually, but the hull is very old!

1 Tube carriers and floor

2 Trial fitting of the tubes

3 Kitten masking up the tube to make the shell for a console

4 Transom and side shot almost ready for the tubes

5 The tubes are well protected in case of a stuff!

The hull is getting on for 30 years old - by the way it's had a new transom as well!

No Rogue - Bob Mcarthy!

The rest of you are nowhere near - but it is a very well known make!

And the same person was resonsible for the vinyl cockup! I realised just after I stood back to admire my handiwork - I was just thinking what a good job I had done with no creases or bubbles to get rid of and saw that half the letters were missing - we left it like that for the rest of the season and you're the first person to notice!

Cookee when are you boys going to make a 5.5 metre version of the banna shark, must be a market for a fast under 6 metre rib think about the sales prospect to all us small boaters looking for more speed without the lenght or problems associated with 6 metre + boats !

Good question Bilge - we've got our hands full at the moment, we're also fitting anti stuff wings on a customers boat, got 2 Phantom 19s to build, got the RCD / CE stuff to do on the leisure boat and then find some customers for it!


The next project could well be a smaller hull but you can bet it won't be anything like what's on the market at the time!
