Just logged on having enjoyed a superb weekend ribbing in Greece hence my late response to this thread.

Sadly Guys you are all wrong.

Those ribs are Parker 1000 Baltic with twin diesel jet drives supplied to the Polish MOD

On photo 4 the second rib is not a Parker rib. the one with the pointed nose

Peter you will notice a difference between the outboard and diesel version. We lift the deck by 12 cm on the twin diesel versions and you can see this by looking at the bow just under the tube. This gives more bouyancy and also increases the size of the fuel tanks. The tubes do not sit in the water at rest.
I believe we supplied four such ribs.
