Pacific 24 mk1

Hi all
I thought i would share with you some pics of my now almost finished rib.

I bought it off flee bay quite a while ago and it didn't look pretty



I totaly stripped and rebuilt it and fitting outboards instead of an inboard diesel (too costly)

Pics taken prior to launching on the 25/01/2013, i have some other pics comming from friends that were at the launch, hope to collect them and add later.

don't like the idea of a jet drive rib, i think it's okay for a hard boat that hardly lift there asses out of the water but a rib (or mine) will spend a lot of time in the air
