Taking Shape

After having my faulty Rib changed the refit is starting to take shape.Working on it since six this morning when I should have been on the water in these current weather conditions.Never mind should be out in her next week-end testing her.

Here's a top tip for you Wayne - put some air in the tubes!

(BTW - is that tow vehicle what I think it is?)

In the water at last, had it's maiden voyage after her full refit and new evinrude ,better set up with the change of engine,handles like a dream,I must take my hat off to the guys at Valiant (IBS) for listening to me and changing my Rib.It only had a slight problem but they did sort it for me.

Nice boat Wayne!! Used to have a Valiant as well but nowhere near as nice as your one. Like the console. Looks like a real purposeful boat. The Patrol models are rare but are good seaboats and should handle a chop with ease, but then you already knew that!!

More action photos please when you get a chance
