Ha yes Mazda tow car. I'm endorsed by the brand so they are going to get involved with the trip.

No A frame. The VHF Aerial and lights are mounted to the console, I've not had an A Frame fitted to keep the weight as low as possible, due to extra height of the Shockwave ICE2

Tom, you are definitely causing some severe jealousy in our household! Our wee 2006 bog-standard-and-very-unsuspended version of the A600 is gonna have some trouble keeping up with you Round Ireland! She looks fantastic though and looking forward to seeing her on the water.

MadTubes thank you very much, we both though share a very good hull design. More than welcome to take her for spin or swap boats for a bit of a leg on round Ireland, would be my pleasure to show you what can do.

Mad Tubes is going "Anticlockwise for Anti Slavery".

Refit completed for Round Ireland 2013

Just got the RIB back from Kieron at Rib Shop. Am extrememly happy with what he has done.
A full rewire, new switch panel, Garmin 750, Icom MA500 AIS, Depth Sounder and transducer, a floor matrix for different seating combinations - with Big Heads glassed into the deck, new fuel tank sender and gauge, full engine service, new treadmaster....
I need to do a little general tidying, add a couple of fasteners, set up the seat configuration that works for me and do a few shake down runs this week coming I hope. Also wondering where I am going to stow all my stuff (need a roof rack!)

Very impressive, great to see this boat doing the trip and looking better than she did in RB4.

Thanks Kerny
its had the grab rail from new I believe, useful as its a tight squeeze
getting between the console and the tubes when you have to.
