Is This A RIB?

Interesting - Well, it's got toobs and it's made of wood!

Waiting to launch at The Camber. Looks like a Riva copy with tubes.

I'll post some photo's later.

Not really a rib in my opinion the tubes are only there as a fender and not buoyancy same as the landau next to it both are hard boats with permanently attached inflatable fenders and it does look ugly but that's just my opinion

na, not a rib,
Apart from the mobile fender not many of the design features that make a rib a rib are displayed.
Could be;
A pretty boat for people who cant come alongside?
PB1/2 training boat?

Not a rib on 2 counts:
1) Deflate the tubes you still have a full working boat.
2)I don't think Matt H could get it to go vertical either(may be wrong though)

not pretty either.

There's plenty of ugly ribs around.
All good ribs should continue to function with burst tubes.
Ribs aren't really designed to go vertical, it's a side effect of being driven too aggressively, so hardly a criticism.
