More Pictures

Starting to look more like a rib now, the tubes obviously have still got the D-Fender rubbing strake to go on, plus tread wear patches along the tops, and ropes down the sides. So this will break up the yellow a lot more.

It is coming up nicely . I hope it is meeting with your expectations. Like you said, once the tube is fitted out with D fender, flat rubbing strake, lifelines and the none slip bum patches it will look more like a rib.
More pictures next week

I would think 1st/2nd week in November, just in time for the more un-predictable winter weather. Bringing it back from Calais by sea, ALL 8 SEATS ARE NOW OCCUPIED!! Looking forward to it.

Thank you, mind you it's good to see the build in various stages, at least I know what is below the deck and quality that has gone into the build. Stage by stage.
