FIB (Flying Inflatable Boat)

With 90 days left till my boat arrives ( not that im counting )

I decided to use this time to learn all that is learnable from the web about our sport.

Stumbled across this which I thought might make a few people laugh or may even interest some of you.

Ive heard of RIBS, RHIBS and SIBS but never FIBS...

Saw it in the flesh last year at RIBEX. Not a lot of freeboard he panicked every time anything got close to him when he was being towed out for take-off as he was quite concerned about swamping.

If they produced a full sized version I think I would happily sell my house & all my worldly possessions to own one
