New Ribcraft 4.8m Commercial
Picked it up last weekend. Ribcraft have done a great job, with fantastic attention to detail. The hull looks like it will handle the rough stuff, which was part of the reason from switching from a Zodiac Pro. Named her 'Sùlair' which is gaelic for gannet, as her second will be on the west coast.
Extras include hypalon wear patches, bow snubber, windshield and stainless steel grab rail, and six internal grab handles. Fits in the garage by the smallest of margins (sits higher on the Rapide trailer than the Pro used to on the Indespension Rollercoaster). Had to drop the jockey wheel right down and inch it in.
Planning to install navigation lights, Perko stern light, anchor locker light, Tohatsu tacho, fuel trays (x2), Plastimo compass, hand-held Garmin GPS on marine mount, dry-powder fire extinguisher, and auxilliary engine.
Engine will be a mint 2006 Tohatsu 2-stroke, 3 cylinder engine.
