The FIB is still available from LOMAC and currently sold in Belgium. It costs around 16000 with the Rotax 503 engine, 18000 with the Rotax 582.

( yes, I am also an ultralight pilot ! )

I presume ...

Here are some more pics I have received from Ficht (Germany). From the loooooooooong movie also supplied on the cd, one can see that that boat actually is no rib but a simple inflatable with an alloy skid plate ( all flat ! ). For fresh water only !
