Also new ribs should come with Digipics of everything that is under floor inc wiring
What a ruddy good idea, and cheap to introduce too. Manufacturers please note!

Not that I have a boat at this time, but why don't new boats come with cleats.

You have to order decent large cleats at the bow and Port & Starboard stern, which I think is a basic requirement, even Fletchers have cleats (not that they are any good as so small!).

Why don't they come as standard.

Attention to detail - boring I know, but it makes all the difference.

"Glove box" space on the console - I haven't got any on my Humber, but recently bought two stud fitting cordura "cockpit tidies" from a local chandlery to put things like shades, emergency knife, spare kill cord etc.

Also forgot to mention for us Medditeranean people a cooler box designated space (or something like it)!!! Very important also when you are cruising at 35+ deg C. Dehydration is a major factor.

PS What I have said that I would have liked on a RIB I have fitted on my boat. And so far I am happy with it.

Places to put things:
The navy blue pouch on the port side of the console (which is actually the best bit about the little Humber - big enough for everything, secure, comfy etc - shame about the attention to detail!)

Same thing on the for'ard face of the "settee" (which was a bad idea!! - the seat, not the pouch)

Sorry, tried to attach a picture, but the files were too big! I've asked JK for expert advice.

Watch this space.

And here's the other one. I think that sofas on RIBs are great by the way -- often the most comfortable seat on the boat. Several people have been to sleep on the aft seat on Phoenix over the years, and I had a very comfy ride in a bucket sofa on the back of a Ribcraft 585 in Scotland a few years ago!

Thanks!! How did you do it?

The "cockpit tidies" are my bargain of the year so far - £1.00 each from the oddments bin at local chandlers.Pretty esential too on this boat, otherwise you have to either open the console hatches whilst under way, or lift the sofa.
