A total BEAST at my local boat club

This RIB has been in our local boat club for a few years, thought i'd share with you. I had the pleasure of piloting her a few times, very smooth boat. Max speed about 28knts. Powered by ~ 250HP I think

It came from an oil rig, buyer totally overhauled the engine and electronics. A bit of polish and she'd be looking well again. Sorry for crap pics, taken with phone.

I'd say she could handle anything off the Irish or UK coast!
