May be I miss the point here but why cup holders are a necessity on RIB? Usually you bounce up and down even at the best of the sea conditions, if you put a (I assume) plastc glass in them its contents will spill allover the place. So what's the point?

Hi manos
You use those nice insulated ones with a lid like a beer Stein.
Or failing that, just the can.
Or just drink fast.

Hi Mark, I see but still don't see the point for those cup holders.

Cupholders are handy when you stop/ are moored... save people spilling beer/wine/coke on the deck/seats... (Not worried about the boat but beer/wine/coke is expensive)...

I would like to see

deep waterproof lockers

tied down straps in the wall of the hull (under the tube overhang) - this is so often wasted space and could be used to fasten wet weather gear, soft drybags, even a fire extinguisher.

Agree with a reinforced anchor locker (I wince everytime steel hits GRP)

deep V hull

and... (Northern European ribbers look away now)

I do like the idea of the seat/bottle rack/storage triumvirate and would add that I would like a seat at the front that converted to a flat bed. This is not as crazy as it sounds.

Whilst we are all rough tough crazy horses (apologies Crazy Horse) who laugh in the face of swells and rain, occasionalyy, we moor up in a sunny place and want to chill out, or stay the night.

I once looked at a zodiac which had a cushion over the bowlocker which doubled as a moored seat, BUT this cushion had a very cleverly fabricated fold out piece which clipped to the front of the console on a reinforced clasp and had two fold down legs as supports and gave a 6foot daybed. When on the move it clipped back into position as the bow cushion. Superb. I will definitely get one made when I buy my bigger rib.

Ideal for lazing around/kipping on/ convincing the wife that you are buying a family leisure craft not a rough tough crazy horse boys toy...

Oh and bailers that work. The ones on my Gemini are rubbish and i regularly drain HUGE amounts of water from the underdeck area on my RIB. At the end of a day out, i must be carrying 200kg of water...

Your current boat does have a deep v doesn't it Edward? That's one of the things I like about ours...it presents such a cheerful face to the waves; head or following...

Wonder if Pete 7 fitted a cupholder in his new console...must have a proper look next time

Anyway I like the look of the new Bananashark Leisure RIB and some superb work has gone into it Kitten and Cookee.

It depends whether Edward has the Waverider 5.05 (like yours, with a deep V) or the Status 5.05 (medium V).
