Yellowfin rib

I'm working out in Florida for a while, and one of the yachts doing the event I'm out here for has a demo Yellowfin rib...

I really like it, 3x300hp Mercs on the back and pretty open..

It's about 40 foot in length, got bolster type side by side seats, large console with head inside, 2 garmin 12 inch ish plotters for engines and mapping. Will get some pictures of it on the pontoon (not on the iPad as I don't know how to use it i guess) the only thing that lets it down is the tubes don't look hypolon and look a bit flimsy!!!!

I'm in south beach Miami doing the tp 52 world champs...

Nice. You've got the cooler time of year there. Summer temps there is just too much for me!

Looks can be deceiving!!!. The tubes are in fact Hypalon, and are made in the new Carbon Effect Black finish and are heavy duty 1500gsm(1670Dtex) fabric. Made by us and fitted by Yellowfin. I have in fact only last week had our technical manager out in Florida overseeing the fitting of another set of Carbon Effect black tubes. At a distance the fabric might give the impression of being a shiny PVC but most definitely are Hypalon!!
