Leaving a rib outside

Thats nonsense! I have a Yam 380 SIB I have owned for 3 years longer than the aformentioned RIB, & it has spent ALL its life inflated upside down outside.
Not only has nothing ever gone wrong with it, I have NEVER even had to inflate it!
It goes a bit green sometimes, but it easily cleans off: used it as a (very large) tender for the Isle of Wight festival this year.

That would have been sarcasm, directed at Gemini....

i think his tubes are more suited to tenders low usage boats maybe for use in swimming pools ! kind of like those bought at the seaside for 20, which brings me on to my next point i bought a rubber ring / doughnut 3 years ago only a cheap one about 35 it cost me i dont have to put any air in it at all all season so if a cheap jap ring can hold air why dont his tubes!

when i bought mine they leaked from even before fitting to the boat ! when i took the inner tubes out the "new" tubes had patches all over the seams and the seams still leaked ! his words were he was surprised that they leaked as he takes great pride in his inner tubes !

i think he even says on his website he has only ever had two complaints ! what a load of balls!

You'd have thought a Botnia owner would recognize humour?

A boat, where the position of the steering wheel is the only clue as to which end is the front.

Itself only slightly to Starboard of the cooker hob, IIRC. Disaster if a feckin' RIBnut cuts a rip through the marina my dear and spills your bouillabaisse orl over the Raymarine
