I see that the thread about RB verses RC has developed and they are some questions concerning all rib manufacturers which would also include us. Not to be accused again for high jacking a thread I have opened a new one since I am a trade member I can write what I please about our product.

Firstly, dubrus you say manufacturers (and this would include us) do not show rib drawings on their sites. We do but not for every model. Perhaps I should upload more.

GuyC, good to meet you at Seawork last week. I have two projects going on the continent with two separate design offices for super yachts (with sail) and the requirements are for an 8 mtr twin diesel and 7.5 single diesel. These would be under deck and drawings even CAD have been provided for both models. I am sure other manufacturers would do the same if the right question was popped.
As for the underdeck construction, how many of you know what the underdeck looks like on your own rib. I have a system in place that from the moment the lamination starts on the hull of a new order, photos are taken and uploaded every Friday afternoon to a dedicated dropbox and a link is sent to the Buyer. The photo files are dated in a weekly order and include every stage of production, sea trials and up to the moment of the shrink wrapping and even from the port packed and secured on a 40’ container. Occasionally I will take a screenshot from the CCTV which is shown to me from the factory via skype. I then send this to the Buyer who can see at that very moment from the comfort of his office or home the actual stage of production. Most of our work is export but not to the UK.
I have attached photos of the underdeck construction of a typical Baltic hull. The first two photos are of the same Baltic cabin hull and show marine ply being used underdeck. Photos 3, 4, & 5 show a 10 mtr Baltic hull for twin outboards where no timber was used in the production of this rib. This is a very high-density foam.
The tube for this 10 mtr Baltic rib was mechanically fitted and it was the very first time we had done such especially there were no modifications to the mould / hull and all the fittings whether for the inside or outside are interchangeable.

There are many underdecks, but this one is mine...

Too well and for too long - getting there slowly though.

Bit more thread creep

The inside of an Atlantic 85 at the RNLI ILB site in East Cowes.

They build them the right way up, not as depicted in the photo!

Sorry, if this is a daft question, but where do your fuel tanks go
(I asumed there would be a central slot like Willks for the fuel tank or do you have 2 ??)
& when does your service ducts etc go in ??
Cheers

There are 4 fuel tanks spaces 2 x 120 L and 2 x 220L side by side and that is the max for the 900 and 1000 models. We will not compromise the strength of the hull just to have larger tanks

I forgot to mention - good examples of different underdeck arrangements

André - do you still use wood or have you gone foam cores?

Willk - I thought you were woodfree but there is a sheet of osb type stuff at the anchor well bulkhead - is that temporary?

I may be getting on a bit but I still have my moments!

Think the ply was a template. That's not the anchor locker - the compartment being formed is a sacrificial bow zone. In the event of a debris strike this would flood but preserve the integrity of the internal spaces. I haven't tested it yet

The actual anchor locker is above decks:
