How do you dispose of a RIB ???

Hopefully this is a seldom asked question but has anybody ever disposed of a rib?

I've got a 5m Narwhal thats pretty goosed and in my opinion its not worth a retube so how do i get rid of the thing?

It is advertised on ebay for 99p but if that fails or nobody turns up what do i do then!

You could always fill it up with soil then put some bedding plants in it and use it as a feature in your garden

Give it to Whisper & Biffer - they'll turn it into the best ever Narwhal, and they'll be looking for a project for the winter.

If its the Tango one, I predict it will sell.

You would be amazed at what people will buy

I know a 6m+ RIB fits neatly in a skip after a few passes with a wall saw.

I agree - I assume it is this one:

Narwhal 5m Rib Hull Boat Project | eBay

Failing that - then a local sea scout / sea cadet group might be interested in it. Even if it is too nackered to repair it would provide a practice boat before you unleash children fixing the group's pride and joy!

Have you considered offering it to a Charity?
