updated photos of my rib

This is my DR 490 which I have carried out some work on
1) a proper seat
2) a proper drain (68mm trunk)
3) A right A frame.
I am planning to put a good size tank under the seat at some stage

I have a 60 HP etec with a 13" * 19" prop with a WOT of 28-30 KN depending on load (2 up with 60-80 lt of fuel)
.
Typical fuel consumption 1.5- 1.8 NM/l. I have just raised the engine by 1 hole and would expect this to improve as a result

, the A frame is not as strong as yours but it does the job, what are the straps on the deck ,were they there when you bought the boat?

The straps on the deck are foot straps. I fitted them last week. I find them good. There are two pairs for the main seat and one for each diver who may be sitting on the tubes at the front.
