I would have thought it would seriously impeded room on the boar. I wakeboard off the transom on my 5m Gemini but would like an A frame or tower but have to say after sizing it up, the tube bulge made it unreasonably tight in the boat..

Hi
No this will sit ontop of the hull, see pic so will be bolted through to that, as supposed to the deck so should not get in the way. If you see how the previous bimini fitted then this fits onto the same deck area.

The frame also releases from the front so you can fold it back.

Just get a tow frame (eg a beefed up a-frame) for your RIB - I reckon other than having a cabin and attaching to that any attempt to put a tow point over the CofG of the boat is going to look silly on a RIB.

Heres the type of frame I have on my boat.

OH YES

Ribcraft have beaten their estimated ready date by over 2 weeks and I go to pick her up on Wednesday...

Needless to say I will post a few photos - I hope the weather is kind to me next weekend so i can get the running in of the engine out of the way.
