Halmatic pacific hull

Dear Readers, does any of you have any experience with HALMATIC PACIFIC rib hard hull of age of about 10 years? How is it ageing during medium rough use? How good (or bad) can it be?

Yoshi hi and welcome to Ribnet

The Pacific 22s are extremely tough boats and will stand up to commerical use very well. The early 80s P22s are still in use with members on here without any major problems. If you want to read the operators manual it can be found here:

http://www.polar-ribs.co.uk/

Their is a wealth of information on Ribnet well worth spending a evening using the search facility.

The RN lost a P22 overboard from HMS Lancaster about 2004 time near Poland, is this the one you are thinking about.

Pete

My brother and I just bought a 1995 pac22 a few months ago that used to belong to the Defence Police and the hull is solid, and I have no hesitations on taking it out in rough weather

halmaic pacific hull

Many thanks for those valuable infos. No, I'm not thinking abt the one lost off Poland. I've found one in UK, ex-Navy, unknown y.o.b.
Thanks to both your replies I am more and more convinced that Halmatic made and makes tough boats. Thanks once again and happy ribbing.

RIB lost by the RN off Poland

Hi Pete,

I did small research on the RIB lost off Poland by the RN. The RN got it back!! The RIB was found and taken by the Polish fisherman from Wladyslawowo (small Polish fishing town) who duly reported that event to the Polish Maritime Authorities who next collected the RIB and handed it over to the Polish Navy who next handed it over to the RN envoy. So, sorry guys, no easy prey this time. Yes, yes, I was salivating myself like crazy and I understand you very well. All above would be impossible in the old bad days. The found RIB would be declared an imperialistic provocation and the fisherman would end up in jail or would be given a gold watch for protecting Warsaw Pact against NATO. But those of you dreaming about fishing out a RIB should go sailing(ribbing) in the Strait of Gibraltar where I myself saw drifting abandoned RIB. The same goes with Sicilly. I learned from the other captains that it is not uncommon, they saw abandoned boats too. RIBs or inflatable boats are used by drug/cigarettes smugglers there and after the job those crafts are simply left behind abandoned. The value of a RIB is just next to nothing compared to the value of hashish or other shit smuggled with it from Morocco. Someone told me that the Spanish and Gibraltar customs have had good a collection of them RIBs and inflatables. Sorry for my English.

Yoshi,

Your English is excellent and far better than our Polish. Thanks for the post, interesting to see what happended to that Pacific. You have to wonder how rough the Baltic was to loose a Pacific over the side of a destroyer, a serious offence by the way since it is the man over board rescue boat and if unserviceable would stop an RN vessel going to sea.

Pete,

Many thanks for kind words and good picture. One can be very unpleasantly surprised how nasty Baltic storms can be. It's very same or even worse widow maker as the North Sea. I've sailed few seas and oceans, but I still got the worst beating in the Baltic. Shit, it still makes me shiver. But it's very interesting sea for divers due to ample of various laying on its bottom. But that's already another story...
Take care and thank you for all once again.
