true, i was assuming that all else is say correct and present and your life isnt in danger, what happens to the rib, obviously if you have a self righting device thats taken care of, however, is it possible to self right other ways? just wondering, having never capsized, i wonder what happens in these situations. of course a life is more important than the rib!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i dont know who would suggest ohterwise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Jono Garton described how he did his after a "mishap" last year in this thread: Capsize!

Essentially a bridle connected to the rib and then brute force to roll it back - much the same as a sailing dinghy without the advantage of a centreboard, and with a bit more weight to move! With anything except a very small rib I think you will need another boat to pull it back. Bearing in mind that your average engine doesn't like to be upside down underwater anyway - so you will probably need a tow anyway.
