I think most peoples definition of a rib or rhib is same as wikipedia, ....
Rigid-hulled inflatable boat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I wouldn't call all ribs "lightweight"!

This thing is supposedly a RIB:
From www.willardmarine.com - 43' Assault High Speed Interceptor

From www.pressure-drop.us/forums - The Official Umpire Boat of the 34th Americas Cup
"This S3 concept increases the stability, passenger comfort and safety of high speed, heavily loaded craft, without the weight and drag (both aero and hydro) common in R.I.B.’s. The energy absorbing lightweight S3 system provides shock mitigating characteristics to the hull. The variable geometry of the sponsons increases hull efficiency and aft buoyancy where the fuel, engine and passenger loads are centered. The S3 allows the craft to stay on plane at lower speeds in rough water than conventional hulls. Air filled tubes are lighter weight and absorb more energy than foam tubes."

They are called "Stab Boats" by the designer "Stab" being short for stability. An accepted form of fast boat. The collar allows the boat to turn at high speed and the VAS is increased to pass regulations. Alan P

Not sure Wikipedia is an official regulator of anything. Type in F1 cars and see what you get? The FIA have a different view on technical issues. Alan P

Gents, I think we all know a Rigid Inflatable Boat when we see one. You don't need to be a technical genius to work it out. If it walks like a duck, swims like a duck & quacks, then......it's a duck. If it looks like the bastard offspring of the Michelin man & Kryten & somebody wants to play with words & call it a RIB, then let 'em. We know different

Forgive my input but surely the definition of a RIB would be any rigid hull vessel that relies on an inflatable collar for its inherent buoyancy without which the reduced freeboard would render it unseaworthy?........ Or something to that tune :-)

Salut PD, you popping over to Cherbourg on the cruise?... I'm actually around for once and was toying with the idea of craning in the SR at Cherbourg for the day.... Would of been good to meet you :-)
