Charles its a nice boat for sure,and they do make impressive ribs.

Its a little like that in that its a cabin rib.

But its not Zodiac but your are getting close.

There is some serious competition out there. As they have been using ribs for a long time in Canada for offshore stuff commercialy.

Within 2 wks you will know what she is all about and why I have bored you all.

Its an interesting boat and I hope you like her.

I am commited to Ribs in the same way you all are, and its my passion as they are what I believe is the ultimate form of offshore boat transport.

I hope you like her.

Thanks CH

Will hold you to that!! LOLOL
Any way I have read a bit about this make of RIBs and done a bit of research to. All comments and reports are impressive!!
This is DAS BOOT
I think that if I wanted an offshore unsinkable RIB to sail the Atlantic or the Pacific would try to get one of those ducklings (not that I can afford it though )
However right now I'm happy cruising the Aegean (smaller waves LOLOL).

Sirzap I think so too she has nice lines and does the job,

That is an interesting drive system on the Zodiac,and we are going single diesel for fuel and weight efficiencie,she will do 36+ knts and burn no more than 59ltrs an hour full speed,maybe 40 ltrs at cruising speed. She is my ultimate cruising machine.

Eskrae Canada makes some fantastick Ribs in Ali and in my oppinion they have a unique Skill set when dealing with this material for Offshore Ribs.

Who are you with now.?
