Ribtec 655 Project - DONE!!!!!

Hi All

If any of you have seen my other thread you will have seen that I ended up sending my Ribtec to the professionals to refurb. I would never have found the time!

Anyway, I sent it off to the Rib Sop in Southampton and OMG did these guys deliver!!

Pictures attached the the boat looks AWESOME!!!!!!!!
  • New artificial teak desk (and repairs to deck itself)
  • New bulkhead
  • New Lean Post
  • New A Frame with nav lights and VHF aerial
  • Fitted VHF Radio
  • Fitted Garmin Stryker
  • New Anti foul paint
  • Cleaned up all the tubes and applied wear patches
  • New bilge pump

I have to say Kieron and his team have been superb throughout and have a very happy customer! Would deffo recommend!

Cheers and hope you like it!! Now to book a day on the water!!!!
