Parker Baltic 900 with 2 x 275hp Verado's

Well after much deliberation over which rib to buy, I have today placed an order with Andre for a Parker Baltic 900 with twin 275hp Verado's.

Set up will be 8 winged back jockeys behind the consul, front seat integrated into the consul, with huge raised sun pad area in the bow, with storage beneath. (keep the misses happy)

A-Frame with Wakeboard towing point and liferings, with echomax on top, 2 x 220 litre stainless fuel tanks under the deck.

Electronics wise, will have the Smartcraft 5000 system, Garmin 2010c Chart Plotter and Icom 421 VHF.

Will post some photo's when I have some through.

That's a serious Rib! Love the shape from the photos I've seen. Are you getting it in the grey/black colour scheme? Very nice

No I am going for the same colour scheme I had on my Ribcraft, Yellow Hull & Tubes with Black Patches on the tubes and Yellow & Black Jockeys. The Yellow is not the really lary yellow.
