Thanks for the welcome

If you want the boat it is yours but only under the following conditions. Since Iíve worked my way up the rubber boat food chain starting with a Zodiac MKII, a MKIII Futura, and now the SRMN, it only makes sense that I go for the next larger boat. Find me an 11 meter, twin jet drive similar to what the boys use over at SBU Coronado and you can have my SRMN. Oh, did I mention that I donít want something that has been beat up by a bunch of SWCCís. Just joking, the 11 meter is a dream that will may never come true for the rubber boat aficionado. See you out on the bay.

I do push the Nauticus tabs a bit much huh? Lol.... They just work so well. At least for the SR4 I'm convinced they should be installed on all of em. That is my sole mission and purpose on this forum.


Oh I could very easily point you to some 30 foot ribs if thats all I need to do to get your SRMN . There is a dual inboard one on selling for $60K. Its an ex-assault something or other and was used on some movie set. There are 2 Nautica 30'ers on the GSA auction but they are totally beat.
I'm like you, slowly moving up the inflatable boat food chain as well. I started on an Avon 10' dingy, then to an 11' Avon dingy, to an Avon 13' sportrib tender, and now an Avon 13' Searider. I should have gone straight from the 10' dingy to something over 18'

See you out on the water.

Big RIB's from the west Norte Americano coast?

Try (Canadian, but we're all friends, at least in theory.)

He'll actually build about any size you want (up to about 50ft, I think.) Twin diesel jets? Not a problem.

Mine is pretty much like the one pictured under Neptune 17'6" Aluminum.
