A lot of threads on this forum deal with the inadequacies of RIB design, the divers want more deck space and the cruisers want more seating and so on. Money no object and within the bounds of reason (well maybe) what would be your ideal design of RIB?
For me the ideal RIB would 6.5 mtrs long sea kind deep V.(got that)
It would have an inboard 250hp diesel fitted below a flat deck (yes no engine housing). (not got this)
Iím toying with the idea of duel drive systems, jet for inshore close quart work and outdrive / surface drive for deep sea. (Stupid? I canít decide)
I would love to have a seating system a bit like a people mover so that you can have a verity of different seating layouts to meet different needs.
I would want very reliable electronic and I hate the all the wires so a CAN / BUS system would be good or even better wireless.
I would want an A frame you can stand on (you can see so much more).
I would want self cleaning tubes that do not puncture and self inflate.
I would love a remote control system that allowed you to drop yourself and passengers of on a beach and that would then motor the RIB in to deep water where it would anchor (on itís own) and wait for you to call it in to collect you. (cool)
And a fridge always full of beer (that I wonít drink because Iím responsible)
Oh and I donít want to pay more than £1000 for it.
