Self righting

Has anyone got any selfrighting gear for a rib frame that is not needed.

Self Righting Bag

We have a bag in stock which would have enough volume for your Tornado, but the lacing attachment flaps will probably need adjustment to suit the footprint of your frame. The bag is as new being the subject of a duplicated order from a customer but we would supply at a reduced price to clear. We can also supply the CO2 system.

Contact me if you wish to enquire further

Hi Red

Just a question, has the RIB already got a frame fitted, and if so has it been designed for self righting ?.

Most A frames are not strong enough or the mounting to the hull strong enough for self righting.

If your looking at buying the frame as well you may need to beef up the mounting point to the deck/transom to take the loads imposed.

Maybe teaching my granny to suck eggs, but just in case



Regards Gary

Indeed the frame will need to be strong enough, if you have this in hand speak to Rock marine services, i know they had one they took off a Camel Trophy boat and it will probably be a damn sight cheaper than elsewhere if they still have it. Speak to Johnathon on 01208 863396
