Offshore cargo ribs regulations?

Hi,

i'm pretty new to the offshore cargo rib world. Has anyone experiences with the need and importance of regulations?

What kind of international regulations are needed?

Buying a powerfull big cargo boat, what tips and tricks can you give me?

I'm intrested in a offshore rigid inflatable boat from
Madera Rigid Inflatable Boats, who name a regulations and standards they comply to.

At boats.com boating regulations i've already found some important regulations, bu i was wondering what your experiences with these are. Are they ever checked?

Any help would be appreciated

John, hi

think your problem will be that each country has its own regulations and we are probably a long way off a United States of Europe, but rest assured our government seems hell bent on changing that Anyway you say offshore, are thinking of opperating between countries ?

Madera Ribs claim to make the "Ribcraft professional offshore Rigid Inflatable Boats" never knew that
Link

They also make "Ocean RIB Rigid Inflatable Boat Manufacturer"
Link wonder if Malcom knows his Workshop is in the Netherlands, not Portchester, Southern England?

Be also interesting to see what this means "Our RIBS are well known because of their high fuel capacity to reach long distances" if you visit them perhaps you could ask them what long distance trips they have done ?

Pete

You may also want to consider these companies

http://www.cromptonmarine.com/gallery/gallery.html

They specialise in high speed RIBs to carry special cargo long distances.

Also

http://www.ribworker.com/od.htm

And also Mike Ring's range of RIBs - can't find his site but look at this

http://www.ospreyrib.com/frameset-eng.htm

Just click on the biggest rib in the pictures.

would that be insurable at that speed?

John as you are putting a 1000 hp on the transom of a 10 metre boat is that gonna leave you much room for cargo after you fuel burn . or will it be relatively lightweight and high value cargo

Madera Ribs

Hi All,

Just red the comments about Madera Ribs.

My company have bought a RIB of Madera Ribs last summer.
I went to their manufacturer plant and all I can say is that it looked very good and Professional. There where mainly big RIBS there.

I am also fimiliar with the Crompton boats, but the madera boats are much different. Please check the pictures on their website.

Before we bought the RIB we made several tests and everything looked good.

After we have bought this rib we have taken this boat from Malta to Mallorca and we still had allot of fuel left in our big tanks. That day the sea was pretty rough but the boat handled very good. And now we are still very satisfied about the RIB.

So I would recommend anybody who searches for a large RIB to buy them from Madera.

Best Regards,

Jan van Kasten

Nice looking site but WHY is it all contained in a little box that occupies about a 1/4 of the screen???
