Yep, the first Atlantic 21 was stationed at Hartlepool. It might have been the first production one, but it was definately Hartlepool that got the first that went into service.

Chris Kaye had a Delta 6x called Sabre Drive. He was one of the early pioneers for long distance rib cruising.

Alans Spirit of Portsmouth later JKs Pheonix was stored in Drivers and looking very sad for itself.


Ribnet is best viewed on a computer of some sort

Nash I kind of agree if you looking for something historical then you want one of the first Sea Riders, Flatacraft or Atlantics (before the RNLI got involved with them). These boat started things off. If you could get an old R&D version or protyatype/development boat even better.
