Project Curacao

This is an 8 Mtr Capelli Rib owned by a Hotelier in Curaçao I have been commissioned to Retube.
Original tube was black and I am changing it to commercial grade military grey for him.
The tube was built and shipped out and I have flown out to fit it for him, 'kind of nice to leave the British weather behind and it's positively barmy out here!

And here she is finished, it's taken eight days to fit out and finally ready for a test drive in the morning.
I will put some pictures up of her on the water. I don't want to rub it in or anything but it's 29 degrees here! :-)
