Definitely , cover is needed -a firm Bimini and maybe an extension across the back.

Don,t have a go about technical issues -I am an end user only!

But if I dip the foot in the water I 'll give you a buzz and see what can be done.for an elegant rest in Nice see my site

www.palais-yolande.com



Phil - The idea that Kevin (Kitten) and myself had was to build a boat that couldn't be bought already, I'm sure the Cap Camaret has some great points to it, but if we had listened to every person who had an idea the boat would never been built!

I saw someone yesterday about uphostery, and I discussed a bimini with him, and all we need to do is make a frame, and he will sort out the covering in whatever colour is required!

We are looking at making the rear seat open out into the cockpit to make a sunbathing area, or putting a removeable cushion on the foredeck - I agree that would require a small handrail, but that woldn't be a problem either!

One of the comments from people who have been onboard has been the large cockpit area and how good it is compared to jockey seat boats that have no room to move about - not saying ours is better, but what some people want!

Not sure what you mean about the extension across the back, could you clarify that?

Thank you for your comments Phil - keep them coming!

Glad you liked the tour Jono - when are you coming down to try it?

Paul and Kathleen - you need to come down and try it out now!

Rodin - I hope you'll see a few of ours there in the future as well!

Demo of the "leisure" Bananashark RIB was the highlight of the southampton boat show for me. It's different from your mainstream RIB,extremely well thought out and put together .

Cheers

Congrats on your recent wins as well - seems like your boats cope pretty well with the rough stuff!!!

I know I always get at people who accuse others of splashing hulls etc but for once it seems someone DOES have something very different - your hull is certainly unlike most others!!!!

Any plans to build a bigger version for twin outboards - my next RIB purchase would have been a Pascoe - maybe a 9.5m one of yours with 2x 250hp Etecs would change my mind!!!

BUT

don't you need to conclude your current purchase before you go sniffing after another rib? that will be even more expensive? Your current purchase seems to have gone on for some time.........

yes a bit silly to ask the price of the brochure, i guess as it shows you might not be solvent enough for them..
