Some other things spring to mind.

6) What about tie down points. I note you can get ones which are flush with a flip up bit. Would you add lots, maybe 2 in bow, 4/6/8 behind seats to tie stuff down. I am thinking of getting an Aux as well and wouldn't want to carry it on the transom at speed, therefore tie down behind seats in a nice protected bag.

7) Does the fuel tank have baffles or chambers which prevent fuel sloshing about too much? Is this an issue with fuel full/half empty?

8) Am considering Garmin 298C Chartplotter/Fishfinder/Sounder using the CD bluecharts as I fancy planning on PC at home then load up with datacard to take to RIB and flush mounted GPS. Anyone use this combo?

I believe they were listed as 125 + VAT each, but thats the upgrade price on top of a jockey seat which includes the normal backrest.

As far as I remember it does. I've never had any problems with fuel even when running fairly empty in rough conditions.

I do the same, although not with the 298C. Saves a lot of time inputing data into the GPS once you get to the boat. It's also quite nice to be able to take your track data home so you can see where you've been, distanace of each leg, max speed etc. Its also handy for loading software updates.

Thanks for all the advice guys. I am really looking forward to the boat show and hopefully ordering a RIB.
