Newbie Ribeye advice

Hi Everyone, I'm hoping someone on here might be able to help with a couple of Ribeye questions. I've owned ribs for many years, mainly seariders and the odd zodiac. Currently I have a Bombard 640 which is a great little family rib, out most weekends with my 2 little girls.



Anyway to my point, i also have a 785 Ribeye project, she's basically just a hull as the tubes were beyond repair and the balsa deck is squishy to say the least. My question is, did ribeye layup there boats with polyester?


Also i'd like to try and identify the hull as apart from the fact it looked like its been through a war, its got no identifying marks apart from the below, written in the glass in the anchor locker. Anyone know any ribeye people on here? Ribeye themseves didn't seem to want to know.

looks like any early 750 rather than a 785 looking at that, have you got any pics of the rib?

Hi wellhouse, you’d think that but im pretty sure it’s a 785 with the distintive stepped hull as it gets nearer to the bow. From my limited research the 750 doesn’t have this step. When I’m back in the office I’ll sort some pics ��

750

the blue ribeye is a 750 for sale at kb boat park and the orange one is a 785 (bit dirty after a road trip). Both hulls are very similar. 750 looks flatter at the stern (tubes look like they sort of overhang at the stern) whereas the 785 looks like a deeper v at the stern with the tubes above the hull at the stern. Both have the 'step' i think you are referring to. Maybe some slight differences in the chine lengths. Could just be the photos but similar in shape.

Thanks Wellhouse, thats really useful! I need to get the tape out but indeed maybe she is a 750, makes sense if thats whats written in the glass, i'll get some pics together and do some measurements.

Its certainly starting to look that way, i've only done very limited research prior to starting work on the boat and it was sold to me as an S785. So yes, looking at it now with what 'Wellhouse' has posted, could very well be a 750 as thats whats writen in the glass.



Either way, its not going to stop me completing it and it hopefully being great fun on the water.
