Pics of my SR RIB and new Bowsprit

OK, I did promise I would post some pics. I am wanting to get more work done to her, however, need money money money.

This is a 6m Sea Rider, modified over time by previous owner. It has a single 200l Fuel Tank Under Floor. I had the new Bowsprit Anchor System fitted. It works a treat. Easy for me to single handle. Good for diving sites. I have put on the SARCA No: 2 Anchor, so it is easy to retrieve.

The Landy (love my landy) has a reasonable Aluminium Roofrack which is designed to take a 3.7m SIB. 2 Bars come from the front of the roofrack down to the Bull Bar with Rollers on them, however, not fitted when around home.

The Landy is a 1985 County, however, fitted in Australia with an Isuzu 3.9l 4 cylinder Diesel. This was undertaken in the mid to late 1980's to improve on the requirements for Australian Land Rovers.

So my two Loves, a Searider and a Landy.

Regards.

Looks really good and practical; I like that. Could you share how you mounted the bimini to the tubes.

A bloke after my own heart - I have a 110 but 1987 with a V8 petrol.

That's a nasty looking weapon on the RIB - great for ramming nasty plastic boats!!!

Hi,

Sorry in delay,

When the collar was made, a metal u-bolt mount afixed to square hypalon patch was glued. The Frame afixes to the Collar metal mounts. Straps forward and aft, along with 2 arms from the forward cross-frame mounting to the windscreen (Wing Bolts).

It is handy for cover, however, I loose entry/exit points for diving off. If I had done it from scratch I would go for a T-Frame off the Console Area.

Regards.
