RIBase
Your Boat ?

After Tim's famous Lets see ya boat then thread on this forum, I wondered what the alternative was.
Everyone on Tim's thread looks after their boat, scrubs and polishes it and is justifiably proud of it.

But what of boats at the other end of the spectrum, I wondered?
An example from Paignton harbour today, of this magnificent example of the rib makers art.

No wonder that it does'nt get out much, it does'nt even have an engine.

There should be a law for abandon a RIB.

Why would anyone leave a RIB like that in a harbour; surly they're having to pay to keep it there......i wonder if they want it "removing" for free!

We've done some work in the past on the Mariner 20hp that was on the back . I believe it belongs to a sea scout group.
