The Atlantic the RNLI had used twin stainless inboard tanks, the fuel fillers were under ther crew bench seat.

Should go well with a 200 on, any photos?

Looks like its more from a Standby boat.
With twin 70's on you could get 32kts, that fully loaded with three crew, and all the associated rescue gear.

I wonder what the weight difference is between that engine and the smaller twins. Looks as though that tank behind the seats could alter the trim - the Atlantic 21 did need to be carefully trimmed for best performance, and you don't want too much weight at the back end. Fuel tanks below decks and forward in the hull is likely to give you a better ride

The tank is in about the same position aft where the 2 underfloor tanks should be ,makes me wonder if they are still under the floor unless they were never fitted for some reason ,as chewy said it looks more commercial than ex Rnli going by the mast and the lack of fittings even if they have been removed at some stage ,,looks a bit ex military or police to me .should make a nice boat though when sorted out .

I think it is an ex rnli as on the transom you can see where it had two outboards at one point. there are to vents on the console so im gessing it has the tanks some where in the hull. has any one ever taken a deck of one. the console has been sprayed black and you can see where lots of stuff has been taken off. i like the aframe but your right it not a rnli one is it. its got henshaw tubes on it.

i saw one with a 300 promax on it so i think it will be ok with a 200.
any one done one as a project. like to see what other people had done.


what would you guys do with it then if you could do any thing with it.

thanks
josh

I'd put money on its NOT ex RNLI.
The rear seats aren't correct, the tubes have too many fittings missing, wrong roll cage.
The FRC Atlantics had twin engines fitted.

Depending on what condition its in I tidy it up and use it, not too sure about the fuel tank though.
The 21 is my favourite RIB.
