Seems a shame when a RIB is left uncared for!
Spotted this one tied up down by the "Midway " carrier that we visited today.
Markings say it is a tender for the America's cup yachts. Hope they take better care of their yachts than they do their support craft!!
Tubes were coming apart/ rubbing strake was loose and generaly needed a good service.
Shame when they are so hard to come by in these parts , that they would let it go like this,
cheers Dal

Shouldn't be allowed near RIBs - see them only as tools usually paid for by someone else and maintained by no-one
