the halmatic is a nice rib have you been in one? what are they like?
Only couple of times but its some years ago, heavy duty, not very fast, absolutely a boat for what they are build for.

Quote:
do they have a outside helm
Dont know but it would suprice me if they cant make it.

Quote:
what do you think is best fibreglass or aluminium ribs?
Cant tell, lots of ribs are made for different purposes so it depends of what they will be used for.

i will have to put jet drives in it so that she can go up creeks and on beaches. i would prefer to build the rib out of fiberglass i can do it myself. i like the halmatic rib but somthing in between that and the ocean dynamic rib worker 40 rib . have you been on the ocean dynamics?

aren't they all fitted with hamilton jets in ? there factory is big and busy so they cant be bad. the rib is essential to the diving safty in this area, and will have a low easy access on the sturn. the ribworker has the cabin quite far forward, this would give extra space to build this in. whats the sturn on the halmatic like? is it a self draining transom or not ?

after talking to my brother about the rib we are thinking a 10m rib based on the ocean dymanic with a wheel house seating for 6. the rib would be built out of fiberglass with ham jet drives in it. has anyone tryed getting a jet rib mca coded? i cant think there would be a problem. would you do fiberglass tanks as well? i like the way you can fit them flush to the hull and get bigger tanks in there, condensation is much less. has anyone seen a hydroulics platform that can be fitted on the transom? only needs to lift 30 stone. thanks people

what do you think of this platform? http://www.floridabowthrusters.com/swimplatforms.htm how hard would it be to copy it? just seems like two hydraulic arms lifting a platform. i guess you could just make a smaller one for a rib. pressman had a good idea of getting divers on by deflating the tubes partly on one side, and getting them in that way. however this may not be the flatest way to get persons to get on the rib? any thoughts
