How much!!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/OCEAN-DYNAMIC-...QQcmdZViewItem

Was speaking to a couple of peeps tonight about this RIB, I couldn't remember where I saw it so I've done the homework for you.

Anyone know anything about these RIBs?

Made in west Wales by Shaun Whyte's company

website is www.ribworker.com

Probably one of the most "serious"kinds of RIB there is - aluminium hull and no transom - could have been invented for surf rescue work!!!

there was an article about this boat and the rescue organisation in one of the mags a while ago.

That price is about right - but seems a strange way to try to sell it.

This is the boat I would most like of theirs

It spends most of its time on a swing mooring at the bottom of the Beaulieu river and has had a lot of engine problems, extract from the Venturers web site:-
We had 3 replacement engines during the warranty period, and one having a major repair out of warranty". We have been offered a very good priced replacement pair by Iveco,
"
Engine problems of this type must come down to poor installation or poor design of the engine bay Discuss Des

Iveco engines are great in Trucks and plant but for some reason are not good in the marine/stationary use. Its something to do with piston liners having o-ring seals that wear or leak allowing the liner to become loose as far as I remember.
Most commercial owners ended up ripping them out and fitting Volvos. There was a boat for sale recently that had a 480/500 fitted and the guy ended up fitting a yanmar wing engine to use as a get me home!!
I can remember when they first came out in the marine sector, they were very cheap and offered high HP, a bit like Scania before Loydds approval.

I think Ocean Dynamics normally fit scanias.

RogueWave uses an Ocean Dynamics boat - wonder what engines they use?

Seems to me they fit whatever the customer asks for - Cats and Scanias seem the most popular but they have also fitted Ivecos and Yanmars.

Err no, Bugle Billy was forged by men of steel from the Welsh Valleys, well Lanelli actually, but it does have a very nice CAT in her.

Ah I thought he drove an Ocean Dynamics up in Scotland or the North sea or wherever he is these days......

Nice to know though that 2 of the most serious Rib makers are Welsh!!! Of course Picton Cobras are also nice boats but not exactly intended for oil rigs!!!
