All sir,
Some have them just for aesthetic reasons cuz it looks pretty. Boat most boats it is for nav lights and vhf ariel and radar reflectors. The bigger ribs might have Radar on it as well. And then serious offshore ribs have A-frames with self-righting gear, but the whole structure would change quite dramatically cuz it has to turn the boat over from that point so it would need to be much stronger than just supporting a few lights etc

On a small rib you dont need one as such. But IMHO they look nice and useful.
