Have the Chinese bought the name a bit like Tornado. Looks like a Chinese rib, loads appearing on the market at the moment, especially in Ireland and usually with a Parsun outboard !

Each to their own but not my cup of tea

It looks quite similar to the one that was discussed below.

https://www.rib.net/forum/f8/china-made-ribs-84154.html

They've called it Ribtech with an 'h' to avoid any confusion with another well known brand. Maybe we should start a thread on 'Chinese names for RIB's' - Libclaft for example.

Just out of interest the 2702 on the slightly odd font CE plate suggests the assessment of the conformity of the product against the ISO standard was done in Estonia (or not).

I've seen more detail on a 20 year old Honda mower for sale on Gumtree!

From the owner..."The whole outfit is brand new and has never been in the water and I am selling as I don't have the time to use it."

Nowt as strange as folk.

Both spellings are used in the Ebay add.

Total rib off without fear.
