An important point, calmly made. There's lots of advice available on here, even when you don't ask for it!
In fairness, I think that the guys were "feeling the anger" on your behalf.
In any event, the RIB is yours and we'll be very interested to see how she comes together. There will be lots of advice (some of it good!) about how to straighten her out. My advice is cost the work before you start and either undertake a tidy up for resale or a project for longer term use. Before you decide which, try her on the water first (either way you have to fix those cables)
