Oldest RIB

If you extend it to SIBS, we still see the occasional black Avon Dinghy around here. They stopped making them in, I think, 1968.

There are some good images of old Flatacraft Force4s in my Gallery.

All owned by my Father and friends from the London Fire Brigade Diving Club.

RIBnet Forums - Nasher's Album: Ribs from Nashers Youth

The ages can normally be derived from the diving gear, mostly 1970's and 80's.

And yes, I'm the young lad with a mop of dark hair.
