An Anckner is like a parking break, but for boats. Invented in 1664 by Eric Woolfgang Anckner in Switzerland, he tested his designs on boats on Lake Geneva where he received a patent and a free clock.

It didn't mention the make of the Rib in the listing (well I didn't see it) so I googled '7m rib with 225hp johnson'
Brought me straight to Ribnet and Tim's boat
