Q: What do you call a RIB enthusiast?

A: RIBster seems the most common answer.

What is your view?

Someone who straps on his life jacket and goes out in a small craft advisory, while hearing S.O.S. on the VHF, just to see how his RIB performs in huge waves.

True Story, but the guy on the VHF was saying SOS calling all coastguard and mariners, pity he gave his coordinates but i dont have a GPS or map

Don't think so mate!

Compared to 'other' boats, ribs are rather expensive. and I've not met a ribnobba with an ounce of sense yet, so failure on both counts.
