The ARRC ribs built for BP must be a contender.

Seeing as I was part of the committee that wrote the rules on what is and what is not a rib it fulfils every criteria as a rib.
The collar has been designed to do a specific job which is to keep the boat afloat and on the surface. Tell me its not a rib when you are moored underneath its massive tubes. Alan P

What committee was that ?

Who endorsed the 'rules' ?

Was it the same rules as the round Ireland 'race' ?

Is it Rigid? Is it Inflatable? Is it a Boat?

How about a Ribnet voting survey - Who would class the boat being built to circum navigate the world as linked to in the post thread is a Rib or a not ? Include reasons why ?

I will start - No I dont think it should be classed as a Rib due to the fact the tubes can hardly be described as an inflatable collar, they do not extend around the rib like most vessels classed as ribs.

British Inflatable Owners Association. 1991
RYA
Round Ireland event was privately organised and the rules set by the organiser.

So from the feed back so far, Redbay and Scorpion are not ribs because the collar doesn't go all the way around the boat? Anything with a hard nose does not qualify?

I think Henshaws might have something to say seeing as they designed the collar.

The collar represents over 70% of the top sides and go 85% around the boat.

The collar supports the boat when fully loaded (35tonnes)

The collar is an integral part of the vanishing angle of stability.

The boat was designed by Professor Bob Cripps. Do a search on him, he more than likely was involved ithe design of the boat you are using now before the hull was ripped off and a collar glued to it.

So, as far as the RYA and UIM go. The boat has been designed and being built as a RIB to the letter of the allowed rules for Offshore Endurance record setting.
