And by the looks of it you never have to inflate it!

Not too sure you could really call it a RIB though being as none of it actually inflates!

RE: awesome new rib

Hey columbiachop, how about this one... 36 ft Nautica rib, kevlar hull with twin Seatek diesels powering Castoldi jet drives? This boat was built by Nautica in Miami, some great people down there I might add! At 55 mph you could put this baby in reverse, Just like having brakes! Check out the Company Franco Rossi built (www.nauticaintl.com) These pictures are 4 yrs old so this is not a new rib, cool boat just the same. Shots of my friend Ray at the helm and running on the intercoastal in Miami, This thing was like a Bus on the water, went over any wake with no problem! Take a look at their website, they build some great boats! They build them to 41 feet incidentally.. I have owned 4 of their boats and sea -trialed many different models they build. Obviously there are a lot more builders in Britain and Europe ( tip of the hat to you blokes!) but we have some few here, Willard, Titan, Demaree, and others.
