My oldest rib was a 1987 SR4 but I still have a blow up dingy that my dad bought us when I was about 4 or 5

I have an early 5m,Tornado which features the simple logo of a round circle with a 'T' inside not sure of its exact age it has had new life lines put on but still on original PVC tubes and holding up well. A friend of mine thinks he knows one of the original staff at Tornado so I might get a better date soon. :-)

That's not possible It'd mean Seariders predated the Atlantic College ribs, which they didn't.
