Lightweight aluminium hull rib 3-4.5 m

I am looking for an aluminium hull rib, light in weight for launching off beach, 3-4.5 m length, that can be used for landing on shingle or rocky coves.

What is light weight? An aluminum RIB in that size range is going to weigh between 100-150kgs without a motor, fuel or anything. Not sure if that will be light enough for you or not.

My ali hull is 4.75m and weighs about 175kg empty.
