Lots of Navy Ribs available!

Hey guys,
Looks like the US Navy is having a garage sale!
They have some nice RIBS that have just come up for sale.
http://www.govsales.gov/fassys/fassubcat2/

I am in San Diego and would be available to go and do some inspections and take extra pics if needed. I am going anyway.
Let me know
Jerry

Hi Jerry,
grab photos of them all (didnt see any on the site).
They are usually trashed, but not a bad project if cheap and you have the time.
Would be interested to see the 24ft'ers
cheers Dal

i think i'm right in saying that the USA will not sell these boats outside of there country or even to a third party whose intentions are to transport them out of the country

You are right the US makes us sign a document stating that we cannot sell to any foreign entity.

And right they are too! Imagine what a nation like Iran could achieve if they got their mitts on a formidable fighting craft like second 24' RIB in the sale:

" PROPULSION-KONRAD OUTDRIVE-ENGINE REMOVED, CRADLE NOT INCLUDED, REPAIRS REQUIRED BUT NOT LIMITED TO-CONSOLE COMPONENTS CANNIBALIZED, GAUGES REMOVED, ENGINE REMOVED, NOTE-ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS WERE NOT ENERGIZED FOR SYSTEMS WERE NOT OPERATED/ROTATED FOR INSPECTION, CONDITION UNKNOWN, *****ALL WEIGHTS AND MEASUREMENTS PROVIDED ARE APPROXIMATE AND MAY VARY. ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT/MILITARY EQUIPMENT THAT APPEARS IN A PHOTO WILL BE REMOVED BY THE GOVERNMENT PRIOR TO THE SALE. "

They'd be zooming up the Potomac before you know it.....

Hi Jerry
did you go check them out? Just 1 day left .
Bidding on any ? (dont worry I dont have spare cash at the moment )
Shame they dont really show the hulls and wondered if they looked sound.

Good luck if you are in the market.
cheers Dal
