Hi Manos
Yep the Watercraft are good Noggie boats.
As for speed we used to have one that size on one of the survey boats yep it was OLD but it always came back - useful on a rescue boat
It was slower than the 8m inflatable with a 27hp yamar diesel out board
Please confirm that our old one was knackered and that we were right in offloading it !!

Have fun in the Sun!!

Thanks Rupert for the info.
However, this is what the manufacturer said to me. I have now all papers (just paid the full amount) but they are in Greek. So even if I show you it will not mean much to you. In any case will have to check it out when I put her in the water.
The boat needs to be surveyed every year (not month).
The boat has papers from Lloyd's and the Hellenic Register of Shipping also is SOLAS certified.
I got some photos today and will post them in a sec.

Jono it looks fine to me.

In an immergency the priority is the to save the people the boats.

In any case the RIBs are fully insured so they can sink if that is what it takes. I really don't care.

This RIB is VERY GOOD, strongly built, has a great engine and it can sail in ANY weather.

Its purpose is to save lives not boats.

Don't understand this one?

As you may notice the reflective tapes are not on yet. But you can distinguish the marks where they had been.

WATERCRAFT in Greece have been excellent (actually they have been FANTASTIC).
They surveyed and repair anything that needed doing, changed the battery, switches etc etc and they are also replacing the reflective tapes. Also the self riding gear will be surveyed and a new certificate will be issued. All this free of charge.
