WUKSART take delivery of their second Parker rib

WUKSART have just taken delivery of a Parker 510 rib . The acceptance tests and sea trials took place yesterday in the Solent. The Parker 510 is the younger brother of the Parker 650 supplied to WUKSART in 2015. The engine is a Mercury 90 ELXPTO with Post Immersion Start.

WUKSART came down with their Parker 650 which allowed us to take some good photos, GoPro video and from a drone . The Go Pro film clips have come out very well only need the time to edit them.

Both ribs were put on the water by Southampton Dry Stack

I like that Andre, there's not enough serious ribs around that size. Presumably with PIRS and no bag on the a frame they are confident they can manually right it just with crew weight?

I doubt they will ever have the need to right the rib as prime role is inland waters hence no bag . A good back up in case of engine failure on the 650 as both ribs have the same size engines .

Hi Matt, enjoy this GoPro clip. A few more will follow filmed from a different place on my rib. That is when I get round to do the editing



The beginning is a bit long with Never Enough so best to start from 1:15

Can you fit a side by side console and four seats in the little RIB?
