Ribtec Re-fit

I thought some of you guys might be interested in a little re-fit we have just completed on a 1999 Ribtec 645.

The hull had been antifould since new and had a large build up of old flaking antifoul so after removing the consoles, a-frame and engine we flipped the boat over to remove all of the old antifoul and cut and polish the hull. The hull was then taped up, sanded and a coat of Blakes primer was applied followed by 3 coats of black Blakes Hard Racing antifoul.

The hull was then flipped back over for the preparation to begin on the deck. All of the old holes we filled and the old gel sanded back using 80 grit paper. The deck was then degreased and completely re-coated with a fresh layer of gel coat leaving a shiny new finish.

The console was completely stripped of electronics some gel repairs carried out to cut outs for old instruments and then new instruments installed in better positions. The console was then rewired using heat shrink connections, new blue sea fuse panels and a blue sea battery switch over’s.

The consoles and seating were then reposition and fitted onto the deck.

The deck was then tapped out using a 1’’ boarder around the consoles, seating and topsides ready for non slip gel to be applied. The deck was sanded were required, degreased and a light grey gel with non slip granules was then applied leaving a non slip deck to match the new tubes.

The engine was refitted and electronics controls connected to the console.

The new Hypalon tubes were then fitted to complete the job.

Cost for this refit was just over £5500.

With the help of a large telehandler and a three leg lifting strop.
