Lol! It's funny. There's a nautical term for everything attached to a boat but not this. Descriptive terms is as close as we can get.........

Thanks Cgoing - I am hoping for the boat to be finished in ten days and transporting here in time would be the problem there as you are in the USA but it's appreciated. That said I suppose it could be retrofitted at a later date so yes please get photo if you would.

Thanks again

Well, those terms are for very old features built up over time. RIBs themselves are toddlers on the timescale of nautical terminology, and these fibreglass things are both unusual and even newer. Its possible that they have more utility in the "med" where "bow to mooring" is much more common than in UK/US - but that presumably means they English is the least likely language to have a common name for them!

In the yachty world I guess such a thing might be referred to as a pulpit (although usually has a "fence" around it to stop you falling in)

Fair point Poly. Sure there weren't so many "Bimini's" back in the 17th century though lol!

Thanks Jeff. They look like a luxury supplier. I have an option to purchase here in Spain by the re-tuber but prices are already high. Really was hoping to find an alternative (even second hand) option but thank you.
