Unless you have a Cabin rib,weather it be a Scorpian or Redbay or others to follow,You aint going to get insurance to go offshore in a open Rib unless it is Ce marked to cat B.
I undersatnd you will now start talking about GZ curves and ISO standards with which I agree.
However, as far as I know most of the larger RIBs todate are classed as Cat B. So they are offshore RIBs. This category will remain (have asked EU in Brussels) in effect for those RIBs irrespective of any new legislation that may be ratified. So there is no problem about older certified Cat B crafts.

The new design/built RIBs to be calssified as Cat B Offshore will have to have all the requiremets that are specified by the new legislation if and when is ratified. So there is no problem again if their builders/designers obtain all those certificates

We NEVER were in disagreement.

I also want to get a cabin RIB (my daughter wants an inside fast boat LOLOL) up to 9 mtrs LOA, light and trailerable AND WITH ALL COMFORTS INSIDE AND OUTSIDE (Med style).
But as these types of RIBs are relatively new, some builders just produce streached versions of their open RIBs and all the other problems we know I am just waiting to see what the future holds and make up my mind at a later stage.
HOWEVER, I will always have an open RIB LOLOL

The only advantage a smaller open rib has against a cabin rib is its initial cost,and that it is easy to tow around and park up.

All ribs are just great boats,I agree cabin ribs are different animals than a small open rib but personaly, If Im on the water I have just as much interest in a rib no matter what size and the people in it.

For a hobby costs are immaterial. I believe that you do a hobby because you can afford it and because the money you spend on doing it is spare. Hobbies do not have value because pleasure has not value.

If I were you I'll re-phrase that. You do not know what you get your self in for LOLOL

As it happens I recognise that rib very much cos I had the privilege of being invited to the launch and went out on it on the Solent.
Must say it is quite a rib. Superb handling , very comfortable ride once seated in the wheelhouse and goes like a bat out of hell. However a typical commercial application ideal for SAR ect,

Thanks very much. I am interested on that RIB but with a small modification on the bridge for cruising in the Med.
As I found this on a site that was talking about boats in general it didn't have any details.
Do you hapen to know who I should contact for further details on the boat, price, engine configuration etc??
Please let me know.

Cheers
Manos
