it is a little heavy at the stern but i just keep the diving gear uo forward plus she carries 160 gallons of fuel so that keeps her down as well as for working space in engine bay , all i can say is you need a thin arm.

I is very, very jealous!

Very nice rib tonka......if it was me I'd sit and stroke it and fondle it all day.....the rib that is!!!

Did you buy it from new, or was it a second hand one??

It's just that someone told me (on here actually) that Delta don't sell to private individuals which I can't believe, but I'm askin' anyhoo!

I've heard that Delta wont supply to non-commercial people also but in this months RIB International, the couple who are featured and live in Scotland (i believe) have a 7m Delta which, from the photos looks pretty newish to me; so who knows?

I guess if the boat was bought under a business name rather than an individuals, it makes it a commercial sale right?

So, you could own a florists and still have a RIB from them as a commercial customer. If they questioned it, you could say that it was for shipping flowers back and forth to an island or something (commercial business????)

Theres ways and means around everything

True!

I could probably buy it through the company I worked for as long as the MD has a spin!

Mind you I'm a little way off affording a delta!

i bought it second hand but although delta dont sell to the private punter the rib was built for private use and has only ever been used privately although i would say when he got it built it was built for off shore use,
