If it's number 161 it might still be the grandaddy here though.

I'm with Nos on this one, earliest SRs were 70's, not 61.

That's what my records have, who knows they could have been made the same time, yours just might have come into service a yet later maybe

So the 1973 Atlantic is our current leader.

With clarification the "1961" 161 could take over.

Wonder if anyone an make half a century? When were the first RIBs made? Though we need to have a working example to win the title.[/

Ok
So now I am curious. Some muppet must have one of the first boats and probably frequents either this site or the circles in which some of these members move....... The power of the Internet must be able to unearth something.

Found it!!! Kind of. It's built in 2001, but is from the original mould, does that count?

At the national waterfront museum.

I bet there's some of the Atlantics posted on here earlier built from the original mould in the 70's?


I still want to know what fate befell Psychedelic Surfer though...
