What Rib???

I am looking for a rib for mark laying and yacht Club use around 6.5m hypalon tubes four stroke outboard 130 to 150hp large console.

What's the latest thinking on what's available, what's hot and what's not?

Try;

Ribtec 585 - (loa actually 6m)
Ribcraft 585 - (loa actually = 6m)
Tornado 5.8
Avon 5.4

The Avon 5.4 and the Tornado 5.8 are a bit small and can be a wet safety boats. 6.5m is a bit big for mark laying at a Sailing Club unless you have some huge solid marks over inflatable marks.

I've not seen any Humbers at Sailing Clubs that have been in use very long so I can't comment on their longevity. That said Rutland SC have three Humbers so a call to their Bosun might be worthwhile.

By Ribtec do you mean Ribeye?

What is the difference between a Tornado and XS Ribs? Are they made in the UK as apart from quality does the weakness of the pound make a UK built boat better value?

Marki, Yes RIBTEC is manufactured by Ribeye now but are two different boats, I have Ribeyes for Charter work and have ordered a Ribtec for training environment which I will use for safety work etc. The ribtec if you dont know it is a more open craft to the Ribeye which has a wash well and more storage. CJL who suggested it has used quite a few of them for his safety work and knows them better than me.

What's your budget and is the large console a side-by-side or jockey? New or used?

Probably a bit big and bit quick for club use, but fits much of your criteria:

What about a 6.5m Ribtec?

We used my Ribtec 585 (formerly CJLs) to lay a considerable number of marks at an event (about 20). 585 was as small as you would have wanted for that, but as has been sent if doing smaller numbers you could get away with something smaller.

You could give the Bosun at HISC a visit, being down your way. He will have lots of stories to tell. Wait 'til he gets back from his hols though.

Still looking at budget - console with two single side by side side by side jockeys.

Good idea about HI SC - Thanks

It's a while since I've been on rib.net and it's good to see it's still as active and useful as ever
