Hi Oli, we went with light grey gel coat with black fabric impression hypalon tubes. Black sunbrella upholstery. Not as exciting as your colour scheme, your new RIB looks very nice.

Sounds nice, the fabric impression, in my view, looks so classy. Thats sound like an awesome boat you've got coming

Getting excited now
Oli, did they run the engine in first, the top end revs seem high for first run out. dont want to ruin your enthusiasm for new boat but we added a new engine recently as did Chris Moody and Honda and Yam have both rev issues for first ten hrs

No break-in/run-in period on the Evinrude's, use them as you wish from brand new

Most manufacturers allow for prop test usually not more than 30 secs at wot as it is part of a pdi as warranty is void if prop is not right.

They are a cracking engine, in my humble opinion.

Probally the wrong words to use but they look good and go well. I was just saying that anything new like that should have a bit of mechanical sympathy when used for the first time!!
