New Rib

After much rough / choppy weather boating with our new demo RIB we have at last had a chance to play in some better weather and get some photo's. Taken off of Yarmouth last week.

The boat is a 6.5M K4+ RIB with a 140 Hp Suzuki. It is an all new stepped hull design - but purpose designed as a RIB and also to perform and handle throughout the speed range. This is the first boat but we are now building boat number 4.

well happy with the demo the other week, I was really impressed with the handling and performance of the hull. Excellent design and good work.....

Waterline...

Just curious.. just by looking at the pictures I have one question.. Do the tubes form any practical purpose on this boat, other than fendering?..

Just look at the picture on this thread

Surprising as it seems from these pictures, it looks like the tubes do touch the water at rest!

Hi Jono

'Do the tubes form any practical purpose on this boat'

If you count buoyancy, stability and handling - then the answer is yes!

I knew that

..but seriously? From the latest picture I can now see that at displacement speeds the tubes touch the water so can understand the tubes providing stability at those speeds/rest, but how do they affect the handling at speed? I know my tubes do, 'cause they're great big heavy things on a big heavy hull and so "dig in" during turning at speed. Do the tubes on this boat "work" the same way? Am I digging a hole here? Shall I shut up before everyone else realises how ignorant I am?........I'll get me coat!.. TAXI!
