I really like the look of this - all the weight taken by the keel as it should be and the side rollers just for support.

Bet they not cheap either............
There are not a lot of jeeps/cars that can and are allowed to tow more than 3,5 tonnes. Mostly you will use a kind of mini truck like this one

Mostly people with a rib bigger than 10m and weighing more than 3 tonnes do no longer use the slipway but a crane to put it in the water. Therefore, no longer the sea water problem.

with a six team to pull it and maybe a couple of outriders with Martini action Winchesters keeping an eye out for Indians.

Or, did you mean RUBBA?

(Ribnet Users Big Boating Association)

RUBBA has, until now, been a secret society of inner sanctum members.

Those members who dare to ride the bigger swell, slice the mightier chop and scuff the closest of sand banks.

Edit: Entry is restricted to those members who have been towed to safety no less than 5 times in the last 90 days.
