Nothing simple on a RIB

So the kids want to wakeboard. No problem. Unless you've ever tried to find a place to store a wakeboard. Very inconvenient on a boat. Ski boats have huge arches you can bolt nice racks to, ribs don't. So enter fabricator buddy, now I do.

Speaking of nothing easy I was repairing a loose patch yesterday in preparation for leaving on vacation with the boat tonight. I slipped and put a big hole in the tube, three hours later today it patched. Hope it holds air for the week. Nothing easy.

That's quite a bit of fabrication. Love it!

Enjoy your vacation.

Just something he threw together in an hour or two. It's nice having talented friends.
