By messing about with a specific design you may well be putting peoples lives at risk if you then take it out to sea with 300hp strapped to the rear end.

Its a bit like owning a Ferrari and then deciding to cut the roof off because its a sunny day and you want a convertible.

If you want a Ring RIB go for one that was designed and built as a RIB.
IMHO
ring ribs and hardboats stared out in the same mould as did extreme power boats, ballistic ribs and a few others, wont be any problems doing another one, have a word with mike ring, he's a good guy, he might give you some pointers

Hi Biffer, thanks for your info ...
I did this week the jockey seats and the console ...
Now I'm reflooring ... after that I'll will look for the tube support ...I will try to put the tube a maximum outside the boat to keep some free space
