99% sure now, thats my pals old boat, he's in Malta at the mo and out of touch but looking at the photos there are scars where we cut the supplied haversacks off the tubes up in the bows either side, thats a Tornado console, the mould was taken off mine and flanges added to the base, it was originally orange..The A frame was made locally, I wish I had the time to dig out old photos to match up but hey small world that boat was sold on Boats and Outboards approx 6yrs ago to Scotland and is not an Ocean Pro its too early. the D section and flat straking was refurbished at Humber shortly before it left Yorkshire..It used to use 5gall every 15n/miles..
I might be wrong but don't think so..

Hope this info helps someone

Regards Stuart

Really interesting - thanks Stuart - it sounds like it has a fair history behind it - but kind of glad I walked away

No problem, just bizarre I've been offline for months. come back log on see this...

I'm still 99% sure on the boats provenance, there is nothing bad, the vendor probably doesn't know the history ,As I've said there were no I.D plates when we bought them in 1992, they were then 2yrs old..Engines were new in 92, I spoke with Frank Roffey at Humber at the time who told us what we had bought..
Proper boat, not a toy, again not an Ocean pro, have bumped into people around Hull/Yorkshire over the years who worked on Fisherys and remember rising and falling 15' alongside sterntrawlers in South Atlantic trying to put inspectorate aboard..
There are other Fishery ribs out there but this is an early one, good boats, I still I own ours 17yrs later....

Again I hope this helps someone, good luck finding the boat for you, if you want any more history, info, etc PM me (can you do that on here?)...

Regards Stuart

Really useful Stuart - the RIB is now re listed for a second time!!!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Humber-Ocean-P...d=p3286.c0.m14

Makes you wonder what the story is this time around but in light of the history I'm sure it would be a great boat for someone

Hi J

Its the seller of the rib you didnt buy!
Thought I would join in on the forum.
A fellow member said that my rib is the talk of the rib world at mo!
I didnt get the re-listing fee either to let everyone know!
Anyway have you found anything else you like yet?

Talk of the R.I.B world !! Well I hope it helps you get a sale Jules,If I raked around in the attic I have pictures of your R.I.B when it was up here, there is a picture of its sister boat (mine) on here, in the 'Show us your Rig' thread..You would see why your ebay listing stopped me short (small world)..
Anyway I have nothing bad to say about these boats, perhaps they are a little heavy as they are a commercial spec boat, double skinned tubes etc but a very good sea boat built to a high spec....

Best Wishes
Stuart

Hi Julian

Yes - your boat has certainly caused a lot of discussion

And no you did'nt get the listing fee

And yes I have now found something that fits the drive although I doubt it will be as fast or safe as your one - but hope its a good starting point.

Sorry to see it did'nt sell for the second time - hopefully soemone on here might be interested and you can agree off eBay

Take care

J
