5.4 Air craft rib.

Thanks to the positive feedback from members on here, I have ordered the above rib which will take approx 6 weeks to be built by Ian at Liverpool Power Boats. Colour will be black tubes and white hull. I'm looking forward to getting back on the water.

Majic , what engine are you going for . I had a 70 two stroke . Ian wouldnt go bigger . I think he usually rigs them with a 50 . You wont be disappointed . Great boats .

I don't think that I can do that due to me being in Manchester and rib being built in Liverpool, but here is the next best thing.

No pics as yet, I know that the tubes have been ordered but not sure if they have been fitted yet, I will give Ian a ring at weekend. Are you going for a new build ?

I think the tubes are standard hypalon I certainly didn't ask for fabric impression. Yeh I think the 50 might be under powered, I personally would go for the max.
