To me the fat nose on a rib eye is fugly and doesn't look like it makes the boat any more functional. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

That said ... ...find me anyone who thinks this is beautiful:

Well, I'm about to find out what all the fuss is about.....

To tell you the truth it doesn't really require a refurb, more a bit of authentic matlow endeavour with the ol' spit and polish and a bit of tlc.

Happy days.

Well.....

Very authentic 5.4 ex RN, Yamaha 90, halmatic console, detachable frame, etc, etc. In fact, you'll have seen the boat before.

But I want to earn one of those 'This thread is useless without piccies' thingamajigs though.
