Really the RIB.net massive will need a bit more info to offer any helpful advice.

What sort of club and what sort of craft and standard of sailor are you talking about?

Budget?

Launching site?

Operating seas?

Are just some of the considerations to be taken into account

A 3m rib with a 10hp tiller would be ideal if you are looking at a beach launch, for 4 kids in a sheltered location if you have £1300.

If however you are looking to keep up with a fleet of Musto skiffs giving it big licks off shore then the above is going to be of no use at all.

Just lifted this from Ribcraft site!

Suzuki & Ribcraft Launch The Ultimate Club Safety RIB Package at the RYA Dinghy Sailing Show
Mar 2008

Suzuki and partner boat builder Ribcraft, launched a new safety RIB package at the RYA Dinghy Sailing Show at Alexandra Palace on the 1st and 2nd March.

The new safety RIB package has been put together based on feedback received from sailing clubs and with input from RYA Chief Powerboat Instructor, Paul Mara.

Paul explained, “We have been working together with Suzuki and Ribcraft to put together a fantastic, versatile and affordable safety RIB package suitable for any club event, from cadet training to general safety boat duties. The package is available to all but with this new deal RYA clubs can enjoy a substantial saving.”

The basic package is being offered to all RYA affiliated sailing clubs at an exclusive price of £11,375. It is also available to other clubs or associations and extra specification can be added as required. The boat that was unveiled at the Dinghy Sailing Show is RYA1, which will actually be used by Paul Mara and the RYA Training Department.

The original concept was put together based on clubs needing to have practical multi-purpose safety boats. Powered by a Suzuki 50hp 4-stroke engine the 4.8m Ribcraft RIB was designed to include features such as; plenty of space behind the helmsman for transporting racing marks and recovering a casualty; a removable fuel tank for easy refuelling and extra grab handles on the forward mounted console for crew safety.

Richard Whittaker, Business Development Manager at Suzuki commented, “We are really pleased to have worked with Ribcraft and Paul Mara to develop the ultimate club safety RIB. Suzuki’s modern 4-stroke, fuel injected outboards are ideal for rescue boat use as they are quiet, fuel efficient and low on emissions.”

Clubs wishing to find out more or to discuss their requirements in more detail, should contact Ribcraft direct on 01935 411846.

As said above, it will all depend on your club's location, dingy fleet etc etc, however one observation I've made over a few years of dinghy rescues is that rarely do you see a club rib > 50Hp. or 5.5M long.

Remember that it will be used like a "pool car" and so unless you have a really strict and active bosun who has no quams about b*ll*cking the drivers or a full time resce crew that look after their craft, they'll be driven flat out most of the time and so fuel consumption will be horrendous. I hasten to add that I know there are responsible peeps out there, but let's face it, most club rescue drivers I've seen operate the "digital throttle" principle!

Also remember one club's ideal rescue boat will be the next's worst nightmare. I know clubs who preferred using Dories - lots of shallow water so the deep V was the proverbial chocolate teapot, but shelterd so waves never a big problem...... UIf you're launching off a beach a Large SIB may be better.....

I've used bigger - but the attraction was that it could easily pull half a dozen relatively large/heavy boats in "herringbone" formation over a few miles, which might be a bit of a drag (pun intended!) with a small engine. Generally would agree - small, agile, nimble are important characteristics.

the club that i am at has

two 5.5m tornados one with a 75 and the other with twin 50s
Two 3.5 tornados with yam 30's
3.8m avon with yam 20 tiller
4m searider with 9.9

all are good boats, in my opinion the 4.5's are the best because almost everyont can drive them and they can take rough weather

Club Rescue Rib

Club Rescue Ribs , if you have £150K the 9.5 M Aluminium Ocean
Dynamic 400 HP Iveco Diesel ,Hamilton Water Jet. Wil llast for ever.
If not our smaller Humber 5.2 Ocean Pro with 150HP extra longshaft.
Or our most recent 4 Meter Humber , good value and construction.
Fitted as beach rescue with 20 HP 4 stroke Yamaha ( Only engine
of our choice ) Perhaps a larger engine for club Rescue .
In smaller Ribs we would always go and have gone Humber.
Buy direct for best price.
