This is an aluminium stepped hull RIB as built by A&M Fabrications - on the Isle of Wight.

Really nice riding and perfroming hull - but I might be a touch bias!

Build quality is excellent.

Pre-treat the aluminum with Alumabrite, followed by Alodine. Use normal hypalon glue, and it seems to work fine.

Ocean dynamics, build possibly the best rib in the world (ally hull) in fact I think im write in saying the owner virtually invented the rib back in the late sixties, if you look up mustang marine based in wales, fantastic boats but fantastic money
