RIB stands for Rigid Inflatable Boat.

You say it's Rigid and I can see it's a Boat so the only question that needs answering is: Inflatable or not? Does it have valves or any means of putting air into the tubes? As they are fibreglass I would imagine not. But is does look like a RIB.

Irrespective of the answer it will probably handle like a rib and most the items on the forum will be relevant apart from patching hypalon/pvc tubes.

So yes welcome and enjoy your Ribbing or Rbbing whatever it turns out to be.
