I thought the idea with a wave piercing hull was that rather go over the way you go through the wave. Having tubes must stop that action and if the bow did cut in and down then the water would hit the tubes with some force.

Have I missed the plot here?

But for the hell of it our opinion.

1. IB. Inflatable boat. ie. soft floor in and out.
2. RIB Rigid Inflatable Boat. ie. slatted hard floor eg. ali panels or ply with a soft (often inflated) keel/hull. The vessel becomes rigid by funtion of the floor.
3. RHIB Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat . Solid Hull.

I guess that whilst this may be logical it is now a bit old fashioned as most accept RIB as applying to 2 and 3. Anyhow old fashioned or not its our preference.

There are a couple of ribs that I wouldn't be surprised if they had the tendency but I have no experience of them so I best not mention them.
