Is it a Jetski? or a Rib??

Saw this today at the Southampton Boat show, so I'll let you decide........ Not really sure why you would want / need one, but I'm sure i would like a play on one! (and yes they are inflatable tubes round the jet ski)

I believe this model is aimed at SAR applications where the inflatable collar adds to stability at rest for MOB recovery.

As for the twin axle maybe it is to stop the trailer sinking in soft sand

I got told by an instructor that on the Tidal Thames and the PLA will say its got handles, not a wheel, so its a Jetski (even for bigger craft that look even more RIBlike)!

Maybe it's a RHI-JS It is rigid hull, it has inflatable section, but it's jet ski, not boat,
Whatever it would be fun to have quick blast, but i wouldn't buy 1.

Just looked at that Kick-AssSki, and me thinks it would suit someone's mother ship.
