Fitting a table to a RIB

Hi there,

I'm looking to install a small table that can be taken out when not in use to the forward area on an AB Inflatables 24.

Does anybody have any experience of doing this kind of thing please?

Any tips or pointers on suppliers etc would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Could you do what they do with Caravans and have a table on a single pole which fits into a permanent socket in the floor? You could have the socket under an inspection hatch so when not in use it's flush.

We have a Ďoccasionalí table in the rear seating area. I believe it was a standard feature with the rib. Itís a bit like the caravan style but the socket protrudes very slightly rather than having a recessed hole as they do in caravans. The pole screws into place and the table mounts on top with a quick release. I store the table in a locker when not in use. To be honest itís not overly practical. Might look a bit posy to be sat around drinking pims in a marina, but like the twin sun lounger infills (front and rear seats convert to beds) we just donít get the climate often enough. Iím not sure if I have any photos of it in place but I can take some detailed photos when Iím down in a couple of weeks if you like.

Hereís some photos of the mount and Iíve found an archive of the table in place. Although it came with the boat I doubt the hull manufacturer made it so I will look for any makers marks when next down.Click image for larger version

Thanks chaps - I was thinking to put a table in just how you've both described but I'd not seen any other people do it which got me thinking there may be a good reason for that.

Seems like it's not a problem at all.

Cheers!

If you don't want to lose deck space you could use railblazer attachments on the tubes ( I have ) https://www.railblaza.com/products/

This is my take on a RIB table. I have a removable storage box on the boat, I made up a wooden "tea tray" to fit on top of the box & then had a cushion made to fit the tray. Great for sitting when we are fishing, handy for a picnic.
