Ribcraft 3.5

It's a small boat that thinks it's a big boat.

I can't find much info on it. The only other one I can see pics of belonged to another ribnetter...

I called ribcraft...Charlie seemed in denial it existed....so I emailed him pics as proof.

I want to get this boat round the island :-)

Everyone should have one. It really does turn on a six pence

(Before anyone jumps on me..no I didn't have a lj on...I was in a shallow river being watched and only went from the slip to the middle and back.)

There's one down our way. Hull is flat as a pancake. Is this one the same?

I think I saw one of these in 2004. I seem to recall the crew looked like they were having great fun with it. One of them did turn out to have a hernia afterwards, but it was a lumpy week.

I'll happily accept it s as a 3.8....but don't think they ever made a 3.8 :-)

Maybe that add felt that size was important?

Measured its about 3.65.....so easy to round up. With a 40 it must be nuts....

Planning a rc gathering Sunday :-) :-) :-)

I'll take another look at the one down our way on the weekend. Looks similar, but I think the hull has a flatter deadrise at the transom than that.
Nice looking boat.
