RIBSHOP triumph again ....

A big public big thanks to Kieron @ Rib-Shop for coming out to the boat today. You would be hard pressed to to spot the area of concern.

It means I can continue to use the boat on a daily basis....

I have also 'used' a versa-dock for the first time & found that the ring hull takes a knack to get the lowest chine on the bow up on the dock , but once on makes doing anything very simple. A lot of power to get the boat up & even more in reverse with a bit of 'rocking' to get it back off.

Can thoroughly recommend them for anything like I needed (versa dock or the like & Rib-Shop)

Pete

You can custom versa docks for the type of hull you have and vary the amount of buoyancy they have by filling or emptying them of water.

It was just a spare empty one in the marina that i borrowed for a few hours. Very odd feeling driving up it with power on, but easily controlled.

Handy to be able to adjust to suit if i ever can afford one and have somewhere to use it.
