thing is if its foam filled or has solid tubes er does that not make it a non inflatable ridgid boat ,the tees pilot cutter has a similar set up they look like foam rollers though from a distance they give the impression that its a very large rib

The closest I can find on the delta website is the Windermere Police boat. Although the sides on the delta last night seemed to be more rounded and tube shaped.

JSP - what you are describing is more accurately described as a rigid bouyant boat (or sometimes RBB) than a RIB. Handling characteristics etc are usually similar, and have many of the positive benefits of a RIB. The main advantages are maintainence and durability of the tubes/collar. The common options are: Aluminium tubes, A foam collar, or a polyethylene tube/sponson. The latter is more often integrated into a rotomolded hull shape too but I have seen one boat which effectively had welded plastic pipe all round it.

The main disadvantage it they are a bit rougher on anything you bump into.

They sound great, no more leaks or re tubing needed. But lets face it, RIB's do look a hell of allot better

...err ..He won that one beating your very own "Kitten" from Devonionshire......and Jonny is alive and well and sticking with performance boating rather than arguing with some of the muppets on this site.
