My understanding is that there was never any moulds. These boats were converted from hard boats

dont know if moulds existed for the big rib in question but it was a one off that was confiscated by customs and excise before it had finished its sea trials in the uk , prosicuting barrister possibly got it wrong when he said these ribs or ones like it were used for smuggling drugs across the channel . i didnt have anything to do with its manufacture but have met the outboard engineer who rigged it and sea trialled it
