Looks great. Be interesting to see how she goes with the Etec, rather than the usual Yams. When the time comes give me a shout, might be able to help with electrics (we try to beat most UK prices) and or Engine. Nothing suitable right now though on the engine front but do have a 2008 Etec 90 coming in this month

RIBase
Nice You bought it at the right time, you can spend the next month or two sorting all the bits out as the weather improves.

Whereas I bought my first RIB in the Autumn last year and just when I got it all sorted (almost) the rain, wind and freezing temperatures all conspired to leave me frustrated.
