Caught this shot on San Diego bay today.

Required for vessels that are too big to handle an MOB scenario effectively. They are usually full of many interesting features... the Zodiac Ribo has a stainless handrail underneath for flipping the boat over if you invert it.

Not sure on these models but I have had bad experiences with narwhal ribs in the past! They struggle to plane and are not the most robust
