Thought I would post a photo of my new RIB in build which I will be used in the Round Ireland.
I have ordered my Shockwave ICE 2 console earlier this week and PSP are shipping this early next week. I will post photos of the boat being rigged in due course.
The deck has a special fuel entry from the bow section to allow for the new console to be rigged and to bring more weight forward. Once rigged this will be in a raised section with good breathers. Underdeck there is 125L fuel cell, with additional flexi-tanks on deck.
The rear seat has been changed into a large locker for additional storage and space on top for kit.
Hopefully if all goes well I should have her on the water mid-late May.
I'm looking at this now. Depending on fuel consumption the Yamaha F150 looks a good option. The weight over the F115 doesn't seem to be a problem. On a standard A600 it runs mid to late 40 knots. My boat has a lighter lay-up but beefed up transom and the ice console, plus a lot more fuel than standard. With all our kit the F115 might not provide the desired power.
