My new Boat

Here you can document your Outboards, SIB's and RIB's re-building challenge.
Restoration is satisfying, a great way to learn, and usually a way of getting something special whilst saving money..
Please make a "New Topic" for EACH build.

Nice one Paul B.
The T3.8 certainly is a cracking Sib - I'm sure you will have a blast in it.
My T3.5ae package will most probably up for offer in the coming months as a complete package - trailer, fish finder, auxiliary engine bracket, bow dodger / storage box, rod holders etc etc the whole caboodle.
Good sturdy boats them Honwave's :drive

Yes, The T32 is a great sib, and extremely capable little boat, on the last WW event we encountered some pretty rough seas on the way back to home port. (Force 6-7) and she handled it just fine, but trying to get all my camping gear etc in for the trip was a tad difficult, Plus occasionally the wife and 2 dogs find it a tad tight as well, so as much as I loved the boat, the T38 was the obvious choice for me
