I can donate an auto lifejacket to go with the Macmillan rib if you want one.

It is lightly used but very good condition, gas cylinder perfect no corrosion and correct weight, bladders hold air fine, never been inflated in anger (just inflated via foot pump every six months to test). Only downside is the halkey roberts auto inflate will be past its "use before" date. Maybe someone else can donate an in date Halkey roberts?

Let me know if you want it whisper.

It's only surplus to requirements as I am slowly updating from standard lifejackets to spinlock deckvests at the rate of one per year (two down, three to go).

Whisper, PM me your address and I'll forward 8 new Avon military grey grab handles which I bought from a fellow RibNet member recently who responded to my appeal on a separate thread for some Avon bits and bobs.

They're new and unused but are a different shade of grey to the existing V00038 parts I've already put on my tubes, but they may well be good for your project?

Exciting News!!!

Ok, I can tell you now....

Power Boat and Rib Magazine are going to let me write a 2000 word article with loads of build pictures on this project that will include everybody and every company that helps with this project!

Which is good news as we still need an engine, trailer and electronics!!! (Still aiming high)

Well done Hugo This should give us a real boost!

You can always call me if you want to help... Alex 07778 555884

Thats excellent news. The more publicity this project receives the more money will be raised for this wonderful organisation, which is what it's all about at the end of the day.

Great work Alex!
