Let me guess. It's flying a maple leaf. It's aluminium. Your new boat is being made in Canada. Is it a close relative?

GREAT BOAT CH!!

It looks like a great boat. And if the Canadian Coastguard uses it what a better reference than that.
Would love to get a ride (and a drink if poss) on the finished product

I'll reserve my judgement til I've borrowed it for a week, but as Manos would say,it certainly looks the biz's. Personally, I like the utilitarian lines. Looks like wot a rib should look like. Not sure the Coastguard use is any endorsement though. If they're like our emergency services, you often get what's cheapest, not what's best. Only trouble is it ain't ORANGE.............

It has the credentiels but I dont want to be a bore you so Im best saying just that.

Mine is from the same Stable, but aprox 2mtrs bigger,and yes they do in my oppinion have an eye for a nice looking rib and built well.

Its not cheap in fact its the most expensive rib in its class.

Unfortunatly

eeeh David you have a way in bringing the best out in me, what do you want to know?

Its 27.5 ft long, beam of 8ft 8inch built like a brick,and goes like stink.


Built of top grade marine ali, with a internal foam flotation so cant sink if holed.
Has 9 air compartments tubes,made of 1850 decitex Orka,hull thickness aprox 7+mill. Has a log kiker for dealing with logs at speed.Keeps the weather of you with the use of a windshield for distance stuff.

ect ect ect and its somebody elses boat.

And it isnt for sale so you cant buy one even if you wanted to,which Im sure you dont want to anyway.

Hope this helps

Sorry Ch, didn't make myself clear. Its your boat we're interested in. And you're right, I am happy with my boat but like everyone else, you always want something better. Anyway, I'm off to the pub now cos' Wolves just won 3-1.

Sleep tight
