I was just checking to make sure everyone was paying attention....actually I was the one not paying attention, I thought they were all RIB's now and they used to be all SIB's.
Just in case anyone wanted more info on them:
From the Achilles website ::SURF RESCUE
ACHILLES are by far the most popular IRB's on the market with 5 different models:
SSL-375:: THE POCKET ROCKET is the fastest and most popular soft hull on the market. It is the model that most clubs use for racing (Over 1000 sold to the surf life saving clubs since 1982).
SSL-385:: This model is a great patrol boat, and is longer and more buoyant than the POCKET ROCKET.
RH-375:: This is the POCKET ROCKET converted to have a rigid hull with all the speed and quick maneuverability of the SSL-375. But it is more durable especially for running up on the sand and also turns more quickly.
RH-385:: Same as the RH-375 except length is 3.85m.
