Rigging a Rib

Hot on the heels of Tim, Gavin and David's excellent postings on DIY for Ribs I thought I would start a thread on people saving money by doing it themselves. The right tools for the job, in my opinion are the most important things to have. This picture was taken at Ribex of my bare boat having literally just been taken out of a container from SA.

A virgin console, utilising the templates one gets with all modern electronic gizmos I stuck these on the console to get a 'feel' if things were in the right place. Also, ensuring they fit, that they do not bump into things inside the console and 'look right'.

After having drilled holes in the plate on A-frame, the radome gets fitted. Anyone know the old fart in the picture, and prizes galore for identifying the other chap.

Sounds interesting Charles, and it very possibly is my machine - but could you run the attachments again please.
