RIBase
There was a new Ribcraft in the IOM with matt black "canvas" finish tubes. The owner, of the Scottish persuasion, said that Ribcraft had advised against but he had insisted. He said he regrets it. It looked waaay cool.

Hard to keep clean it seems.

Especially with 5 RIBnetters rafted outside you

Dirt resistance is pretty good on this fabric, it gives the boat a very utilitarian look i think.
I like it a lot and will probably tube my next boat in this.
