Ribtec 5 mtr rib information

Hi all

Can anyone help?
I have just bought this rib and would like any info you have.
Have contacted ribeye but they are unable to help due to them taking over ribtec after this rib was made and have no previous records.
Cannot find any serial numbers or builders plate but rib believed to be from a super yacht year 2000
Also does anyone know what jet unit this is?
It's not hamilton!
Any help would be great thanks.

Jules, you could try ringing Ribeye up again and asking for Tim Wilks, he owned Ribtec before selling up.

Next is Keiron, he worked for Ribtec.

The one who might know unfortunately is Gary from Spartun Marine unfortunately his business went under, however he is around the Gosport area, so someone might know were he works.

If the boat is post 1998 as you say then it will have had a HIN number on the hull somwhere, had to for CE/RCD. Ribtec were quite good at this, although it might take some finding, but normally the transom.

As for the jet, what make is the engine?

Pete

Hi Jules

The boat is a 5m Riviera, originally designed as a super yacht tender, they work off the same hull as the Ribtec Freeway.

The engines fitted were either the small 4cyl Volvo diesel or from the look of your control panel the 4lh Yanmar.

The jet unit fitted to yours is a EuroJet, they proved to give a few issues, I think they manufactures stopped production in the end and were changed to the Hamilton Jets on the later models.

If you want any more info just ask.

It is the shaft end going into the jet unit that has alot of play on shaft.
Need to work out how to get jet unit off and look more at it!
Thanks

Removig the whole jet unit from the boat will be a job and a half. they are held in with bolts and mastic, you will end up removing half the gel coat with it, you will be better off trying to remove the bearing housing along wiith the shaft as it may just be the seals and shaft bearing that need replacing.
