What do you reckon?

My RIB is now at Scorpion in Lymington. Should I have the new hard bow nose white, like the hull, or yellow to match the tubes?

I would get bow section to match the tubes, because if its a diffrent colour it will look odd. look at the redbay web site they have updated it and its great, and they use hard noses in some of there ribs......

Defintely go for the yellow. Then at least from the distance it will look like it's still a RIB!

yeah, but...

Liquidator and Hot Lemon have theirs in white, and look the business

I reckon that a session with a bitmap and Photoshop is in order, to produce a mock-up (no, not a cock-up)

And let's not forget My Pleasure, also in white (and Awesome - with the natrual aluminium finish!)

Nose Colour

Hi Charles

I agree with Richard. Go for it in white. Our is white so is Hot Lemon and they look great. Splits the colour up. Go for it.

Thanks guys. J K, your comments, useful as ever
I am going to go for a white nose to match the hull and striking yellow tubes - too much yellow!

Richard, a nice project for you.... whilst you sit in the back of a boring server room.
