Hello, Am new to the site.
The RIB in question belongs to my father-in-law and is called Son-Of-Nipper.
It's SouthRib Special project jobbie used to showcase some new maufacturing techniques that result in a massive wieght saving.
As was mentioned earlier, the owner is a dead keen fisherman and likes a turn of speed as well!
Engine is a 440Bhp Yanmar running into a hamilton jet and tops out at a about 50Knots.
very much fun indeed. I spent all weekend out on it at the Cowes P1 recently and it's a very good Photographic platform to boot!
We are all very proud of that boat and the effort that went into making it. There are plans for a 600Bhp 9.5Mtr version! Interesting times ahead..
I've attempted to attach some picture of the RIB in action...
