Here's a picture of a 30' RIB I just finished reconditioning, beginning a 2,000 mile road trip from Iowa to San Diego to meet a ship which will take it to Maui, Hawaii. It will be used as a dive and adventure tour boat. The tow vehicle is an ex-military 10x10. The boat is an ex-military 30', 600hp, twin jet drive Novamarine (one of only 18 ever made) that received new tubes, console, Stidd seats, new electronics, and a hinged radar arch that can be lowered for travel. More work will be added in Hawaii.

What i find strange is that you can actually register a tank as a car and use it on British roads - all 68 tons of it!!!

Hi Codprawn - here are a few pictures of the RIB...as you can see there is still more to be done, including dive platform, more wiring, windshield, extra seating, installation of the console hatch, lights and antennas, etc. The buyers were eager to take possession and want to finish the work in Hawaii where the weather is more friendly this time of year.

The boat was originally designed to be dropped from an aircraft so is extremely heavy duty in all respects. The electronics are based around the Garmin 3210 bundle, with Interphase forward/side scanning sonar and the SeaMarshall system which allows divers in the water to activate a locating device on the boat. I've wanted to install Stidd seats in a RIB for a long time and this boat was perfect for the application - replacing multiple bolsters. A great project and lots of fun to work on.......
