Re: Andre's New RIB

Sounds like an interesting boat and engine package.

Look forward to seeing some more pictures as the build progresses. Would like to join you for the trip from Calais if there is space.

Re: Andre's New RIB

Just got back from Poland where we held a distributor's meeting and of course this gave me an opportunity to see the progress of the work on my rib


In the first picture you can see the engine being lowed into the engine compartment.
the second picture shows the fuel tank area and you can just about see the outline of the DOG console
the third shows the underdeck sleeping arrangement. A floor will still be fitted and once the DOG console is installed over you will be able to see the full advantage of this.

Somewhere for her to plug the hairdryer in then? A flushing toilet, and sprung matress. Thats Marys' idea of a perfect overnighter.

No please don't cos that will confuse everybody. My console will be put on in a few days time. At the moments the electrics are being fitted. No engine and tube as yet but hope the rib will be here for Easter
