San Francisco Ribs

I am looking at a transfer for work to the Bay area next summer. I will be looking to live between SFO and San Jose.

Are there many RIB type boats runnin around the Bay area?

Hi Patrick, and welcome to Ribnet

I was out there a few weeks ago, and counted no less than about 10 Protector cabin ribs...

there were also others...

I'm also considering a transfer there from UK and if it all comes about will aim to take my rib out with me...

good luck with the move

I rarely see RIBs on the SF Bay; then again, I don't spend much time out there.

If you're looking for rides, there used to be an outfit that had a Zodiac for rent (Found it doing a web search for SF boat rental or charter, I think); other than that, not too many.

If you're just looking, Monterey on weekends with decent weather usually has a dozen or so divers out in RIB's (including me.) Monterey is about a 2 hr drive south of SF; an hour or so south of San Jose.

There are quite a few I spied in Sausalito the other day. I had my SIB out on the ocean along the Marin side of SF Bay then made a tour around Alcatraz and went for a hike on Angel Island.

Thank you for the replies.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are quite a few RIBS in the bay area.
It looks like I might move there next summer. Will be taking my SR5.4 with me.

Now if I can only talk the wife into a new four stroke, moving map GPS/fish finder etc...

SF Bay

I went to the Americas Cup in SF the week before last. Plenty of ribs working, support boats, police, etc.

Here's a few out today for the last race. Too bad NZL lost out, but USA clearly had the faster boat in the end. Very cool.

Wasn't the America's cup exciting. Got to hand it to the American's, they never give up, just
like WW2. Getting ready to re-due the bow on my 17' Aluminum RIB, turning into a deeper V. Running a 75 hp 4 stroke Yamaha. ROD
