Concept Rib

Are there any concept ribs being built ?

Got an Idea you would like to see incorporated in to a rib.?

What do you think the next great idea will be for rib design or extras.??

Looks like an interesting project.

Will there be any under deck storage lockers ?

We're doing the hard boat version first, but we may do a RIB if there is a call for it? Four racing seats with an option for a large bench behind for the leisure version with a cabin comprising of a V berth and a small galley with the heads under the berth.

This looks like it has a stepped hull.
What are the advantages of a stepped hull ?

I was thinking more along the lines of wells in the floor for holding batteries and storage of other items. Watertight.
Trying to keep the weight to the lowest part of the boat.

A consul with the steering wheel let in to it so it does not stick out as far.

Two under floor in line fuel tanks and change over switch.

Spare conducts under the floor so as one could add accessories .easily..
With screwed down access covers each end.

A vhs aerial built into the A frame that gos up when you turn on the radio like a car aerial.

The fuel breather run through to the transom.

It does have a stepped hull, and like hull designs they all vary, but operate on the same principal. To put it simply, instead of running on a "pad" or the rear of the "V", a stepped hull runs on two or three points, ie. the point of the transom and the steps forward of that, this reduces drag and increases pitch stability.

What do you have - I will listen to anyone!

If you put the steering wheel closer to the console, you will have to cut out more space for your legs or do you have very long arms?

VHF aerials like that used to exist for CB radios (I'm going back a bit here), but especially on a boat it isn't practical because of the environment, a VHF aerial needs to be exactly the right length to work properly (to short and it could damage the transmitter), and with all of the salt it wouldn't last long.

The other stuff is common on well made boats!

Less likely to slide off the trailer on a steep slipway.
