I am happy to answer questions and I will take on board your views. We will hopefully !!have 3 boats at Ribex if we can complete them in time, A 6.3m, 7.8m and a 10m. You will be able to have a good look at the boats and we will be doing demo runs. People can then make there own minds up.

Well said and welcome to Fibnet. Just remember, keep your hands inside the carriage and don't feed the monkeys

re 9mt rib

hi all
haveing seen the boat at ribquest i can confirm its a nice bit off kit,
i think the customer wanted the big engines.

its on my wish list when i get a larger rib...

dave at ribquest is a very fair guy he is service,ing my suzuki engine at the moment .
may be when buying a rib from new, ribquest is worth looking at not all rib makers are down south ..
thanks
steve

all i said was it looks a bit low, i stand by my words, i hope you will look at this comment constructively, a boat that size will lend it self to commercial work, looking solely at that picture i formed an opinion that by the time i had people, 2 liferafts, and all the other kit associated with the MCA code that the boat would be too low.
i offered a solution which was in my opinion worth looking at.

Biffer,
I welcome your comments and I fully understand where youíre coming from.
The 9m in question is a cat B Rib designed for a leisure customer and It has 500mm tubes which meets his spec. We have had 20 people on this boat with 14 stood down the side and I hardly moved still giving plenty of free board and stabiliy.

For commercial use, we can use a different transom moulding to take 600mm tubes this will mean the tubes are still in contact with the water at rest but I donít see this as a problem. (Some old school Rib folk may say itís not a Rib if the tubes donít touch the water)

If we feel the need to raise the free board more at any time we will of course either add wedges to the existing mould or make a new mould to incorporate the raised tube flanges.

Rgds Dave

Chris,
With regards to Ribquest customers posting on this site, I have never asked any of them to do so and its no different to any of you posting for the manufacturer of the Rib you currently own, unless of course this is just a Osprey,Humber,Ribcraft,SR4 only club !

Dave, I wouldn't worry, it's the Osprey club who mostly open their mouths to let their bellies rumble.
