A Bloody Disgrace

Please look at this Picture of a runied RIB.

This is a perfect example of how not to look after your RIB....

It has been untouched for about 2 years.. the owner dosent care

and if it wasnt for Gavin , who tied the stern to the dock.. the only thing that would sticking out of the water, would be the bow !!!!


the second photo is of the Garda (police) Rib we see a lot of.

Agreed, but its the boats next owner I feel sorry for. You can just see him posting a thread on here saying it was really cheap but has a few problems and what should he do about it,

Suprised the Marina staff don't tell him to remove it as its an eyesore.

What brand is the Police Rib?
Looks like a 7m Osprey Viper but there is some small things on the boat that is`nt Osprey and boats looks longer but that could be the pic that lies.
