Chinese Ribs

I am looking at buying one of these , , has anyone had any experience with these Chinese boats , the one I am looking at is PVC , is there anything I should be looking for that would indicate inferior quality .

Importing boats into Cambodia is a costly exercise , these are already in the country and are US$18,000 .00 each .

Welcome to Ribnet.

Unfortunately I can't comment on these particular boats, but if you do a search for "PVC grade" or "PVC quality" you will get some good general discussion.

To summarise at a high level, the quality of a PVC boat is down to a combination of the quality of the PVC material and the welding. Think of a child's inflatable toy dinghy for one end of that scale!

The Chinese RIB will be somewhere below that
