Cheers Andy20 for your kind comments

the attachment shows the radio & navigation equipment which is being installed. I applied for the radio licence yesterday and got the MMSI and Call Sign so the AIS will be active and ready for demonstration at the show.

I had to think of a name for the rib so she will be known as NEVER BETTER

Well the Parker 750RS is now on route to the UK for the SBS. Here are a few photos taken on the water last Friday.

We will be exhibiting in Solent Park stand C015. For very serious buyers a demo can be arranged after the show as I will be keeping the rib at Southampton Dry Stack

I will post the price during the week.

The photos do not show the Echomax 230 Midi radar reflector and the arm rest cushions and head rest cushions are missing from the bench seat. these items will be fitted prior to the show.

So what do you think?

Matt

This is our standard fitting and have been doing it for many years now and have never had an issue. We use deck inserts so the deck furniture is bolted down. Easy to remove if required.

Nice one. I have heard Parker Ribs are bullet proof and it looks really nice. I saw one whilst down at Poole Quay and it was the dogs........

Cheers!!
