( Either that or he was preaching to the great unwashed of Fareham about the benefits of RIBS.)

Looking forward to the updates Andy.

Look Cool Andy

Can't wait to see more piccies as the build proceeds. Are Osprey allowing you to go into the factory to see Work in Progress ?

I'll do my best Andrew, I will be traveling to where the build is taking place because I'll have to deliver the console for correct positioning of the fuel tank and final positioning of the console and seating arrangment. This will be done with the deck off, so I'll get a good Idea what's underneath. That's a few weeks away, they haven't started building it yet!

Good news!

Just had the news that Osprey have only today started work on the Layup of the hull this ties in nicely with the fact I've just bought an ex demo Evinrude 150DI which is an XL shaft, and 30hrs on the clock and 18 months warrenty left. This'll be fitted to the Vipermax a week or so after I've taken delivery. This gives me time to do a part fitout of the engine components, leaving the dealers to concentrate on fitting things at the engine end to include fitting and bleeding the steering.

I'm very relived at getting the outboard sorted as I can now specify an XL transom on the RIB.

Starting some work on the console before it goes up to Osprey next week. Fitted the front Hatch and trying to figure out where all those gauges and instruments should go.

The steering is going on the Right and have a glovebox fitted to the left with the Control in between (I wasn't successful in obtaining a Throttle lever with a trim/tilt on the right of the handle)

The first two photo's are two layouts I was considering I think I prefer the one with the first photo with two larger instrument clusters in the middle.

I would like your opinions though if you think I can improve upon this.

Andy, do you have unusual hands? Why can't you press the trim switch with your thumb?

I bet you rarely look at the engine instruments when you're bouncing over the waves. I'd keep the nav stuff in good view in preference to the engine stuff.

I certainly agree with a glove box. Make it as big as you can manage. And a hand hold as big as you can manage too.
