I was wondering who had listed that stuff.


I've got my eye on the Gecko.

Good luck on the gecko,
The project went quite fast and we found a way to use the leftover flowcoat as non slip so we were ok in the end. Thank you so much for your offer though There is still a little work on the console if you want to see that or we can take loads of photos for you

I have for you:

Aluminium toolbox (to bolt on to the trailer to put ratchet straps etc in). I'm sure, between us, Biff and I can fab some mounting brackets for it.

A small Pelicase (it's been lightly used), but they're good bits of kit and waterproof. I thought it could be used for a toolbox for the Yam tools

Ratchet straps. Think they're blue, from memory, but if you want to go with the black ones, you can have them anyway for spares

A single axle flushing kit that I'll fit

A grease gun (I'll load with grease)


I'm busy at present, but will post a pic when I can and drop to Biff. If the lightingboard is 6' (which I suspect) then I'll supply one of those too.

All the best, Ben
Hi Ben,

Thank you for all your help with this and your generosity too, also thank you for servicing the borrowed trailer and replacing the break cables too

You have been absolutely great with this project even though your daughter hasn't been well so hats off to you, you're a great bloke

More great news, I have had a PM from MustRib to say that he has donated 200 and transferred it into our account Thank you MustRib!

This really is a mile stone for the project as Once the hull sells later tonight it means that the engine and trailer will be paid off and we can transfer the money back to Neil Harvey who has been very good in putting up this money until we raised the funds Without Neil doing this we would have lost the deal on the donor rib.

Also can I say thank you to the two other Ribnet members that also offered to loan this money

So soon the project will be 100% funded by Ribnet members and supporters, which means that we have built this package out of nothing but donations, donated parts and help from great people.

This really is the power of ribnet, thank you all for your support
