nice one....enjoy :-)

much better than the other one you were considering.

just be careful when you come to a stop with the lack of freeboard at the back, you'll get used to it in no time though.

cheers

Ah yes, the deck washdown! It just needs a gradual slow, or a quick flick to the left or right.

Lovely looking boat though.

Haha yeah that had me worried but out on the water test it was all good. There are two big bilge pumps as well so should be fine. I will need a new prop for it soon. Any places best to get one from.?

I think Biffer or maybe now Whisper, has a mould for that Ribtec to fix the deck washdown problem.
