What RIB is this?

Hi,

I have just purchased this RIB from a dealer on the Isle of Wight and am wondering if anyone knows the manufacturer and type?

I have uploaded pics hopefully.

Its a 5m Rib. It has a 'Falcon' like insignia on the tubes and console.

Rich.

Think its a Rimini, made by Mike Capaldi in horndean, Hampshire, or was as they stopped making ribs about 97/98 time. different sizes were achieved by using a fillet in the mould, so they could be 5 - 5.2m. The moulds are still available. Diver Magazine has a few details:

Could it be a Stuffer 5.5? Downhilldai has one very similar, but with the optional 'fence'.

Hi
I think it is a Rimini RIB as I have one that has the same logo on the bow.
Its RIMINI 520 5.2 m long, blue tubes same looking console.

I dont have any of history of the makers etc. But I did hear it was made in Hampshire so that agrees with what was said before.
