I bought rib because I like going out in all weathers. But I dont need to wet in the rain! I like MarkM suggestion. I believe it would be:

this boat forsale was a daily drive, the owner has had a very well constructed spray hood fitted, it looks neat and looks very effective.

That does look smart - would get rather hot with the sun out but that could be sorted.

found this on the old e-bay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Humber-attack-...QQcmdZViewItem

the only thing is... it looks like the cuddy part is held on by the means of Velcro .

I wonder can the cuddy break away from tubes?
It's very interesting idea of cuddy part but if it can't float... I wouldn't lose the nice thing

i have a coulpe of ideas on how to make and design a perfect rib tent thats removable, or you can leave it on for slow cruising, but i dont know where to get the materials, ill see if i can draw a sketch or somthing and scan it in here, but main thing i dont know where to find is very think foam which can be cut and shaped to form a large foam insert (upholstered) whihc could go at front of boat infilling that gap in front of the console, providing a lying down area. then two poles, stainless probably either side of the console to provide the height for the tent, then the other material i dont knwo where to get is some small rubber, or just plastic hooks which could be discretely attached to the tubes to provide a tie down for the tent material to the front

You should be able to get thick foam for a "matress" - try typing "foam" into www.yell.com and you should find someone local. There is a supplier up here who do it and create matresses for caravans boats etc - but its probably a bit far away.

Can't help with the hooks - but an alternative which might work - would be to go all the way over the tubes - with the cover and then have a "draw string through a "hem" and the bottom of the cover (drawsting would need to go right to back of boat I think when in use).

Polwart..... that is exactly what I was meaning, only im not sure what they would attach to on the tubes of my rib, its a humber ocean pro, where the fendering on the tubes is rounded so a hook would not get a hold. but may eb worth giving them a call

I would also want it to have a zip down somehow near the console, an i wonder if they can then make it extendable to the rear a frame if desired, again zippable if needed to keep the elements out.....interesting website, thanks!
