Local bargain RIB

I saw this cool rib for sale locally and had to pick it up. Red Knight Inflatables out of N.Z. I've never heard of that brand, and there's not too much information online but it looks solidly built. Hypalon tubes, super deep hull and looks like it has a (closable) water ballast hull like the Seariders.

These are pics from the seller, I will update with more pics shortly.

I thought Seariders were the only ribs to have a water ballast. The tubes look to be in excellent shape. Absolutely no leaks. Five chambers.

This thing also has the longest jockey seat in the world.

The built in fuel tank is huge. It goes from the front of the console to the rear third. A Fortress anchor Looks like the previous owner made some custom parts out of some stainless. Some shelves in the front and rear and a removable windshield/grab rail.

I don't know if I'd want to race you in my Searider - even after I dial in the prop!
