New Flat Deck Version

Have opted for a modified version, now a bit larger, wider, this is the way to go to give boaters what they want/need as a yacht tender, new to ribs, learning on the way as did with sibs.

Happy Ribbing

Yeap, this larger 340 rib version has the flat bow deck the previous 320 rib didn't have, so why waist time and effort modifying it, this model will be definitely preffered by boaters as a complete & friendly yacht tender. Will be powered by Tohatsu 2 strokes 18 HP.

Happy Ribbing

Sorry, been away from the computer.

What I did was set a plate up off the floor using some 4 cm high "feet" with the plate having some clearance from the tubes. I'm going to visit the boat at the mechanic's today (having motor i$$ues) and I'll snap some picks.

You can use stainless, it just isn't needed if the cost is an issue. 5000 series aluminum and some wash-downs with fresh water will work fine.

Take a look at these, you can see the basic design, angled and not rubbing against the slanted parts of the floor, and mounted with 2 inch thick HDPE blocks (there are a second set of blocks underneath, just the ones in back are lag bolted through the floor).
