So who has the "Oldest Rib"?

There a couple of threads on here with old Ribs, some just pics of previously owned ones, but who currently has the oldest RIB?...

A 1978 SR 5.4.

Original hull and tubes. New transom though.

What do I win?

Trouble is there are a couple of seariders around that should be called 'Triggers Broom'.

They have had replacement tubes, new decks, and so much of the hull rebuilt there is very little left of the original boat.

What do you say Davy Buoy

Nasher.

1973 Atlantic 21. Had a wee modification, but the rib has not been touched, ie the collar (tubes, sponson) or the hull
It's just had seats put on and a small engine to push her along at 48.2knts

Ah but all boats constantly need work. I think if the hull is still in one piece, that's the marker. I mean transom, tubes and decks are just accessories aren't they?!

1973 is winning! God that's as old as me.

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.
