superb...

Hi Spike - that looks stunning!

Been looking at Ribcrafts and wondering about colour combination - yours is about the nicest i've seen - what was the total build cost with the trailer, those backrests/consoles, a-frame & fs60? - basically the spec you've chosen (if you wouldn't mind it would be much appreciated, pm me if you don't wan't to post it on here)

cheers

Chris

Looks a great boat - having the console so far forward helps balance the engine out nicely - should be great for wave jumping!!!

It's a Ribcraft 4.8m right? Not much option for console placement Codders in a small boat. Looks nicely fitted out though and let's face it a mere 16 days late is pretty much on-time for a UK rib builder!

Looks like a 5.3 to me, I didn't think the 4.8 had enough spage for side by side jockeys.

If they told you the 7th and you picked her up on the 23rd, you've done well!

not noted for getting them out on the due date! HOWEVER, they build an excellent boat and the aftersales is spot on.
You won't be disappointed....

Ahh. 50cm makes all the difference then. Still a nicely rigged boat!

Hi James,
When i ordered it i had an inline one double F.S consol on order but as the order was delayed i thought id see if two single jockeys would go behind a single F.S consol & had them all trimmed down to keep the boat in proportion & changed the spec, it seems to have worked out very well & it does not feel or look to cramped at all. Im delighted with it. Well done Ribcraft.
Mike.
