Commercial RIB Project Wanted

Would like to find a commercial RIB hull as a project. Doesn't need tubes, engine, console or anything else for that matter as all will be replaced. Possibly Halmatic or Delta would do the trick or even a Ribcraft 7.8/9.0. Happy to consider aluminium also. Minimum size 7m. Please let me know if you know of anything languishing in a yard somewhere! Cheers, Nick

Ramco have a couple listed on their website at the moment. Worth giving them a call as they usually have other stuff knocking about which isn't listed:

Hi Andy,

Depends on what it is and how much needs doing to it! Can you PM me some details on what you've got?

Thanks

Thanks for the two leads - will check them out.

Anyone have any experience using the Arctic 28 and opinions, good and bad? I've used a Ribcraft 9m plenty and am always impressed so would be interested in comparisons as I won't be able to sea trial the kind of hulk I'm after!
