The Eurocommuter is here

Here is a well deserved First public preview for rib.net users and in my way, a big thank you.

Well you have all put up with my mutterings about what to me is the Ultimate Cruising Cabin Rib.

I would like to thank all of you for your patience.

As some of you knew more than others,It has shown me that integrity does exist between rib net users.

I am looking forward to seeing you all on the water when she arrives and having a laugh.

I have taken a chance and have at least got on paper what will be to me, a great boat when she is built,and then arrives in Europe.

You have all helped in many ways that maybe you never knew, as I have watched for some time and listened to all your advice and cherry picked ideas and used what I thought were prudent ideas in design and concepts for my ultimate offshore cruising boat.

I hope in turn that may be some of our, at times heated and varied discussions, have also been of use to others.

This boat grew out of the total respect for Rigid Inflatable Boats as I believe they are the utimate boat for versatility.

Once again thanks to everybody and I will post some detailed pics in the next few wks.

Have a great yr and safe boating to you all.
I hope you like her

Cheers Crazyhorse

Helluva boat, Crazyhorse. And a great attention to detail on that spec - with stuff like "davit for MOB"

I am extremely impressed John. It is quite clear that an awful lot of attention was paid to getting the spec right before building commenced. I think this is the key to a good boat - preparation and thought before buildng it.
Are you going to be using the boat for any major accomplishments (Atlantic crossings etc) or just as a safe offshore cruise rib? Have you decided where you are going to keep her?
Did not see any mention of a cigarette lighter?

Hi CH
Looks good, looking forward to seeing it in the flesh so to speak.
only comment is unfortunate choice of back ground for the 'and fishing ' page, some miss guided people would get the wrong end of the stick.
Nice to see you've got easy access to the bows wich is lacking on quite a few others of this type.
Good luck
Jelly

Hey CH!!!

THIS IS A FANTASTIC BOAT!!

And as the old saying goes 'They do not build boats like that these days'. It looks that you have spent a lot of time researching and paying attention to (even) minute details.
Impressive!!!
Wishing you all the best and hope that you enjoy her

The boat looks fantastic!
I am really looking forward to seeing it.

One puzzle though?
How did you learn to spell so quickly?
