Air craft ribs.

I've been looking at the above and I'm sure I have seen a review of one on here but I can't find it. Has anyone got one and what are your opinions of these ribs . Thanks,

kerny.

Might be worth PM'ing GED (I'm not sure if he is reading the forum regularly but he might get a notification of the PM by email). I think others on here including DM will be able to give you an opinion too. I've not driven one, but there were quite a few on the (failed) IoM trip a couple of years ago and they looked well put together and seemed to handle the rough stuff as well as any of the other better known makes.

My first rib 10 years ago - never should have sold it . Ian at Liverpool powerboats builds a great boat . Ged on here is the expert . Still see my old boat and doesn't look its age .
