Building in aluminium,

Building in aluminium,

We have now got are drawings for a new 10m twin diesel Rib she will start commission in November as we are still playing with a few final touches. the rib will be made from aluminium and will be made for the purpose of adventure ribing. The rib will have seating for 14 plus 2 crew, we are putting two Hamilton Jet HJ213 so she should be one hell of a rib .

I hope to post pics of all of the ups and downs of are build so all advice and opinions will be much appreciated.

Is anyone building with aliminum on here?

thanks

Dont know yet waiting to here back from ham on what they recommend, Volvo is out of the question to expensive to repair and to buy. engine bay is the full width of the rib so we should get what we want in there, do you have any experience with hams ?

Frank McLean at A&M Fabrications (Isle of Wight) is building a stepped hulled RIB to my design. Hull is mostly complete but it has been on hold for some time which is very disappointing.

She will be a demo boat- but customer orders keep getting in the way of her being finished!

They build in aluminium. Talk to them... 5-6 years agoe they had smaller "real" rib boats in size 7,5m. But they have people working in many companys and they also build http://www.km-stockholm.se/cinderella_batarna.htm one of these if i remember right. And they are very good at waterjet.

Maybe they have people today in uk? or visit them in oregrund 80 km north of stockholm.

Pop,

I work for a company who build aluminium workboats purely for the commercial market. www.alnmaritec.co.uk We are about to start building our first aluminium rib - albeit with solid foam tubes so not a true RIB!!!

I look forward to watching your progress on here!

Cheers

No - they have made many boats - and Frank who runs the company is probably the best Ali worker I have come across.

Recently they have been building the aluminium catamarans for South Boats, but have built anything from commercial Hovercraft to Patrol boats.

Give me a call on 01983 528820 (office hours) and I will pass on contact details. A & M Fabrications are based in Cowes.

Adam

Not working on any projects with foam tubes at the moment. Last one I recall working on was for patrol boats RIBs for a Middle Eastern country and that was some years ago.

Pop,

it was our client's preferance to use foam tubes, plus for commercial applications particularly when the vessel will be regularly coming alonside rough walls, piles etc, we think it is a more durable solution. You also save some space as the foad is typically a semi-circular cross-section and therefore doesn't come into the cockpit as far (the aluminium side shell does need some supprt though).

Cheers

Caledonia i guess you are using them on oil rigs ect? Do you have a website

Caterpillar 3126 and the Hamilton are power pack we have decided to go for.

We are coming up with a way of having a water (fish) tank fitted under the deck as we love are fishing, has anyone come across this in a rib.

Thanks

Ben

Pop,

we have a old website, www.alnmaritec.co.uk but our new one at the same address is going to be launched shortly. Good luck with the project. I like the selection of engine and jets, should be a bomb proof set-up. Is it a Hamilton 274 you're using?

Cheers

Caledonia

In the end we went for Hamilton HJ322 with a Caterpillar 3126 should be a nice commercial set up . Had a look at your web you build some nice boats, i can see why you go for the foam its not what you call summer time in the pics rrrrrrrrrrr .

The rib that we are going to build is more for the tourist and fishing side of things, have you found a good way of keeping the noise level down? Have you come across any good fresh water fish holding that could be adapted to a rib?

thanks
