Ok, I have found an engine and trailer as part of a complete boat package, we have first refusal on it as it looks like the sale fell through....

The price is 2500 and it's a very good deal. However we still have the issue of how we are going to pay for it. We have an account set up ready for donations so we'll see how that goes over this weekend....

Thank you

Yes, the guidance from the person that donated the rib is that it should be restored to as close as possible to the original spec. However a few upgrades here and there would be cool as long as it all fits in with the look of the original rib

You mean upgrades like a self righting bag on the a-frame

more like, upgrading non-slip paint to gel, may flow the inside of the bottom half of the console as they are just mat and also look at the plotter / compass position.... Biffer is going to upgrade the transom's support fixings with a special Custom Rib conversion which is well thought out and much much stronger
