Hi, so glad that I stumbled across this site.

We are due to take delivery of a Zodiac cabin rib shortly and want to be able to take her to ground on various beaches if the conditions are right. Is there something that we can put on the bottom of her hull to protect the grp or would this just slow her down and be counterproductive. Your thoughts would be welcome.

TIA,

Biz

Hi and welcome to the forum.

You can get a "keel guard" which is basically a long strip of some sort of plastic. I have one on mine (which I think was standard from Humber). Don't think it adversely affects the performance - but then it's not a particularly fast rib (mine I mean not yours).

Regards

Steve

That sounds like just the job. Thanks Steve.

Hoping mine will do 40kn with its Yam 300 🤞🏻🤣

advise you get the "keelguard " fitted by an specialist ,as they look cr@p if not straight. also go for the best you can afford. Mine cost £100 per mtr plus fitting, but it looks really good.

When do you take delivery? If it's before April, I have an excellent "Ribnet forum members free dry stack storage offer" being launched this Friday.
