Cool RIB video

I leafed through a renewed Boomeranger website and found out a cool RIB video: http://www.boomeranger.fi/video.html . Really wild ride! Not recommended for beginners!!

I went also to www.fbdesign.it. It's also about the get new shape. Interesting to see, what Buzzi brings to our eyes in near future...:-) . It's still amazing, how little information for example google gives you related to RIB 55 superfast RIB...nearly nothing!

Fab sites. The new Buzzi project looks amazing - a 17 metre RIB capable of over 70 knots!

Yes great to watch - really enjoyed it.

Does make me wonder though - whenever I see a RIB performing like that they nearly always land on their tails - wouldn't it be better top move the console up front to keep the bow down?

I know there would be a risk of stuffing but I am sure nose weight would have helped that RIB a lot.

Problem is it may have been strong wind that lifted the nose, the boat may be ballanced, but big weather can trash it. The boat needs to fly nicely under its best design conditions. Outside of those conditions its performance will degrade.

One hell of a first jump!!! They must have taken a pounding. There are a few big slams there .... just shows you, no matter how big the boat there are always conditions that hurt.

Now they are some major jumps!! Had a look through the rest of the site and recognised the Irish Customs Rib based here in Cork. Didn't realise it was a Boomeranger. I'd say they have some fun launching it!! Can it be launched while the boat is moving? Anybody know? If so I'd really like to see that, although I don't know what customs would think of lone RIB chasing them out to see

If you see any of the SMITT patrol boats on lease to the UK Gov you will see a simillar arrangement with Humber s on the back. Rogue Wave will tell you the full story but I think thet went into a southampton firm to get the tubes reinforced as this method of recovery was eating the tubes!!

Customs RIB

I am not fully sure, can the customs RIB get launched and boarded during moving. It's still very likely. I have personally launched and boarded a similar sized Boomeranger on one of our rescue cruisers similar to mothership in your picture. The slipway works fine, you just let the boat to slide away to sea (and spool up the engine before that...) and start driving. Very simple. And boarding is nothing more, just drive in and attach a cord to RIB's nose and that's it. I'd say 5-10 knots is a nice speed to lauch/board daughter-RIB in a mothership of this type. The aluminium ship by the way is also built in Finland by Uki Workboat Ltd.
