ha, no not planning on getting her antifouled, I have done a deal with Port Solent to have her lifted once a month and the hull powerwashed down. When I had the Ribcraft (which was not antifouled) in the Marina if I remembered to pull her out once a month and powerwash down, I found that kept the hull clean.

Then what I will do every second month, get the marina to make her the last lift of the day, so I can give her a proper wash and polish underneath..... or at least Dave from Boat Care can then drop her back in the water the following morning. Trying to get some lifting straps sorted out as don't really want her going in the lifting slings squashing the tubes.

Just got his shot from the yard. As you can see the D fender is on and they are just finishing putting on the lower flat rubbing strake. The upper one above the D fender is still to come on.

Looks more and more like a rib

Lift and Shift do strops - you will need Parker to fit some lifting points into the boat if you want to avoid squashing the tubes, use a spreader, or one of those moving square yard cranes.

Lifting points are fitted as standard, 2 on the transom and 1 on the bow

Taking shape nicely

Now she is looking more and more like a Rib. Well pleased.
