Any RIBs in San Francisco?

Hey guys - I'm looking for some contacts in San Francisco of people that have RIBs. I'm a New York based maritime photographer and might need to get out on a boat next week for about 2 hours to shoot some photos. If you are interested or have any info, please contact me directly at bjoernkils@gmail.com.
Thanks!

RIB's are not very common around here. You might open it for a fiberglass hulled boat, and of course post to a different board. Would probably also be good to list where you want to go as the Bay is HUGE and covers many different cities and counties. Someone might be more willing to help if they knew what launch site they were expected to use, and if there is gas and maintenance money involved.

Sorry I can't help, as I only have a small SIB.

Already chatted with Bjoern. He's looking at hitting the area under the GGB to (I assume) shoot pics of a Volvo Ocean Race boat coming in (on Friday, 2-15.)

He was looking into chartering one of the America's Cup support boats last I heard.

Hey guys - thanks for your responses. The VO70 Maserati was doing a record attempt from NY to San Francisco so we didn't have a specific time for the shoot. Captain Brent from SF Boat Support had a 27 ft Fletcher with 250HP which was perfect for the job. We ended up meeting the boat 25 miles offshore and escorted them in, as they broke the record.

Pics? (Not trying to horn in on your business stuff, but I missed the news coverage as well as the actual boat.)
