Tired old RIB

I have rescued our tired old rescue RIB from the bottom of the compound, harbour is away to be converted to a marina, & the builders are due in.

It has a Yamaha AUTOLUBE 50hp outboard, on the rubber sides it has NARWHAL/ DAYFER written on it.

Looking inside the console, the battery is right next to the petrol tank, this does not seem like the ideal layout.

Is this standard for RIB's, any advice on how to get some info for the restoration on a budget.

Your assistance is appreciated.

Rob

Hi & welcome!
What do you need to do to it & what do you want to do to it?
Do you have any photos of it to give us an idea of that state it is in?
With a bit of TLC you can do a lot!
Here is a photo of my rib when I got it & one after a lot of TLC!

Hi Nick,

How did you clean them tubes up and does the shinyness last for a couple of trips.

Regards Nick R.

Nick I have used a lost of thing, but the best & what I use now is 303 Aerospace Protectant. I spray it on & use a car washing sponge to work it over & let it dry! It last about 3 to 4 weeks & makes the tubes look like new & the faded jell coat too! Has the added benefit of giving you UV protection too!
