Hi Hal
Certainly possible - can also modify the design to suit your exact requirements if required.

Quiet a bit of information exists for the design (from lines plans to structural details, tanks etc) - so give me an e-mail and can go over further details on the design and its features.

Kind regards
Adam

Still waiting for the builder to finish - this one is for himself - and he is busy building some aluminium catamarans (non-RIB) for another customer.

Bit frustrating as really have very high expectations for this boat!
Adam

PS - Opti going OK - But had a problem with a loose injector in its first race causing it to go into Guardian mode. Going out for a test tomorrow and try another prop or two.

Hope the new opti is running well.

After a long break due to other work the builder and owner has got back to the Aluminium RIB - should be fully welded very soon and removed from the jig / turned upright.

Actually hired a Buster on a trip to Sweden a few years ago. Travelled around the Archipelago for a few days - absolutely fantastic and one of the best boating trips I have ever done.

Adam,

Is there a minimum size for an aluminium hull? Welded ally ribs fascinate me as I spent some time working as a TIG welder in stainless steel. I've been impressed with Ocean dynamics craft but havent seen anything around 6-6.5 metres in ally.

As you might imagine the idea of a self build kit for a RIB hull flat-packed in ally then sent to the buyer for assembly has occured to me. All the profiles could easily be made and cut. Then the buyer could have all the fun and satisafction of liquid metal alcamey(?)

No moulds, no curing and easily configurable for inboard engine mounting, couple this with a removable tube system and I might just have talked myself into an affordable boat-!
