Stramge Rib

Does anyone have any idea what make this rib is. The "tubes" are solid ??

It looks a serious bit of kit if not a little neglected and has been sitting in our club compound without moving for over two years.

Certainly something inboard. Don't know about the smoke though - as I said, the thing has not moved from that spot in two years let alone seen the water. By all accounts, the owner bought a bigger boat and "forgot" about this one. A great shame.

ts not a manos mobile

it look like a solas appoved type

it could be like the RNLI E CLASS

The Tiger Marine fast response craft was chosen to operate on the Thames as a top speed of 40 knots was required and none of the RNLI's existing inshore lifeboats achieve this speed.
This is the fastest class of lifeboat in the RNLI fleet.



Introduced in:
2002

Length: 9m Range: 4 hours at full speed

Beam: 2.8m Crew: 3

Displacement: Construction:
3.5 tonnes approx Aluminium alloy hull. Closed cell foam collar.

Speed: 40 knots
