Biffa (my favourite comic !! alongside warlord..) -

Thanks for the observations - I know what you mean about the cleats near to helm....I used a rib kitted out with similar on tubes either side of helm position which makes single handling much easier...

I have asked to see how cleats will look slightly inside of the tubes either side of helm and at bow and stern although I am concerned that they might catch clothing etc brushing past them (quite tights space with everything loaded) so I'll wait and see at the time of fit out....never tied on using rope cleats which are in place - I assume this is just as good?

In relation to the underdeck build process the guys at Ribcraft showed me the process you mention undergoing on another rib - I'm not an expert in this so hope one of the guys at Ribcraft can give a shout back that this is 'how they do it'?..

actually my nickname is biff came from having a very bad temper and a short fuse when i was younger, i think someone had already logged the name biff when i joined, any back to cleats, popup cleats are flush when not in use you can get them spring loaded or manual pull up, bolt them into the side of the console higher than the tubes, in the pic you can just see one on the side and it's open, have a look at www.cquip.com that will make more sense then, biff

All bases covered

Hi
All the underdeck structures are overlaminated with csm & sikaflexed so no worries on that front.
regarding cleats on consoles we tend not to fit cleats on consoles because people will end up using them for the wrong thing eg a major mooring point without thought to structures of the boat.(this is often 2 nd user)
I would tend to recommend putting the engine in neutral and running your stern line and your bow line to the console grab handle simply tie off (on the side you are coming allongside!) and they are ready for your text book coming allongside manouvre. (I used to deliver yachts single handed and this technique worked everytime)

Ribcraft 7.8 Maverick Project

Just got back from the factory and found the guys working on Maverick following the festive break...

Essentially deck now sealed and transom being readied for engine mount. All the boxes of goodies were being opened just to make sure everything was there and we ran through a final agreement on layout and 'personalised' the helm position for my size...

Have done away with grab handles so with the money saved gone for a Fusion ipod player for those balmy, sunny, millpond sea, halcyon days we so often get in north wales..

Also, having followed a recent thread on Ribnet, we discussed a factory fitted keel guard and having seen a couple done at the factory have gone for this option as well ....

Interesting points...

Main watertight hatch in front of helm needs to be offset slightly to be able to be opened in front of Ullman. There goes my Feng Shui

Have gone for seperate arial for each of the two VHF units and also the AIS system.

Dorian was as helpful as ever and he has promised to send across some photos from the next few important stages - all should be coming together quickly now....keeping the pressure on for delivery next week....

8 more sleeps !!!

OMG ...tell Dorian to hurry up...I need an excuse for another cup of tea! Get it home, get the kettle on and give me ring. I'll speak to you from the helm!

It looks fantastic

Ribcraft 7.8 Maverick Project

Can't believe the tubes are on - saw them being fashioned the other week and now they are on the hull - awesome...just really frustrated I can't get to the factory and see for myself...

I have gone for some wear patches on the sides by the Ullmans which i think look purposeful and the tubes are ready for the side 'bumpers' - I have got a picture of them now on but i'm probably being too nerdy to show these as a sequence shot...

The console has been cut to the spec layout and all the electronics are getting plumbed in - looks quite busy now...

Thanks to Dorian for the pics ..... gonna pester him for any final shots before the weekend to keep me going.....

Thanks for your approval of our boat

I have Hella P&S LED's, but opted for the Aqua Signal toplight. I went for the 2Nm option which are very good.
