Two stainless sleeves in deck, offset up in front, starboard side?

My light bar/arch fits in the two holes for storage on my Willard (Pic #1/#2). I've always seen the .50 caliber mount attached the the sampson post (Pic #3). Also in pic #3, you can see the edge of the arch in it's storage spot (I had only seen that in pictures of older Zodiac though).

If you ever have a chance to just cruise through pictures, go to Wikimedia Commons and search "rhib".

Exactly what mine look like. Should be just over console width and the legs from the removable light bar/arch slide in there for stowage.

Could be different....

there are a couple. http://www.Gsaauctions.gov being the largest. Also Government Surplus Auctions at Government Liquidation might get some. Those are the two that I checked when looking for my Zodiac.

Canada has the same type of site but not sure what they are up to. They sod of a ton of 733s a few years ago. https://www.gcsurplus.ca/

I used to deliver aluminum where these boats are made. That place is like the workshop of dreams.
I've seen drop down front landing craft with 4 huge outboards and all other maner of craziness.
I asked the guy if he gets a discount if he buys one I think he told me they get 10% off but he said the boats are the cost of a large house so even at 10% it's not practical
I loved going to that place

I seem to recall that the 25' USCG Safeboats run them near a quarter million bucks a pop. May or may not be accurate, though.

Yeah that's what I recall too.

For someplace like WA or AK (or BC) I could see the cabin being an asset. In Cali, no way. You'd roast in that aluminum and glass box even with AC. And there's no deck space for the bikini clad crew to lay on either....
