RIBase
I've seen these on the net before but lost the link. I seem to remember them having the 2.8 Isuzu engine in the 150hp model.

Where're all the salty old dogs rubbishing new technology and early adopters enthusiasm??

Maybe people just looked at the picture and thought it was a chemical toilet?

I would be rather concerned about it's attachment method - there would be a hell of a lot of force on it coming down off a big wave - boar goes one way engine goes the other!!!


Al;so looks like it's just asking to be swamped in a following sea or if you just chop the throttle.

they've been around for a wile, they don't seem popular hear, on smaller hulls with big weight power on the transom, goin over big waves, the motor trys to filp the hull over, cuzz the transom weight pulls down hard when the hulls in the air.
so the hull goes vertical and stalls in the air and drops like a bag O'rocks or inverts and come back in upside down

As everyone (who looked) who visited Ribex will know we are now offering a diesel water jet in a 6 metre RIB. Either the 1.7 120hp or the new 2 litre 120hp mercruiser package - the hull will also be available with a diesel sterndrive, the new Vazer from Mercruiser and of course outboards. We will also be offering a 5 mtre version in outboard and Vazer versions only.
