The Bigger RIB

Hi all forum members.

Are the larger commercial ribs in demand.?

Are the project ribs best found on the well known auction site.

Any ribbers out there looking for the bigger ribs with inboard diesel engines
where would you start to look for one and what would you be looking for.

Thinking with all the engines that are being stolen everywhere an inboard engine sounds a better option.

or a project rib is this a sort of specialist thing.

Pac 22's etc often seem to be listed on findafishingboat.com

They always seem to list quite a few 'projects' too.

Might be worth a look.
