Know what you mean thought long about a side by side, last rib just had a single console and iam thinking of getting gecko with intercom

If you're still going to have the radar then make sure Ribcraft reinforce the mounting with flanges to the tubing. They had a radome mounting brake a while ago and with mine they put the flanges on for extra strength.

I looked at the new one, there have been some alterations to it, they have raised the section from the rear of the hull to the bottom of the tube so that the tube sits higher out of the water, i think its called a scollop or something,or maybe its something that goes well with garlic or butter,
anyway, also they have increased the length... im sure i got told that.. speak to jace anyway, but lovely boat!!

I don't know about the new 'shell fish' mods described by Matt, but I can tell you that as of about august 2007, a 585 mould was stretched to 6m. Mine was the second one to come out of it!
