forgot to say, i will need to probably move the seats back, it looks like it was built for a dwarf to drive judging by the pictures.

i have never done this before but i'll need to have a go i would think.

cheers

Nice boat. before shifting the seats around, you might want to tidy up around the transom. Hoses, cables etc. Looks like a classic RC rigging job

I bought a length of proper rigging hose & a pair of deck glands. Disconnected everything from both engines, including the steering hoses. Ran all the cables/hoses/looms in the rigging hose & pulled all the slack back into the console. I also moved the primer bulbs into the console from the transom.

i will add it to my list of to-do's on it.

i want to try buying a flat steering wheel, that should give me enough space to be comfortable in the seat, can't find one yet but i'll keep looking.

Also need a keel guard, why anyone would spend this on a rib and not have one is beyond me TBH.

Fit aux engine transom saver.

Tidy wires up etc.

I can't wait to take this thing out, i have never been on any other rib than my own adventure.

cheers

I'd try the steering position first, you might be surprised. You could always fit a tilting helm, which would be easier than moving the seats.
I'm having a keel guard on the new boat, but TBH I've never scuffed the keel on any boat I've had, it's usually around the transom invert that chips occur.
