New Ali RIB

Early shot of a new Aluminium RIB that I have designed and is currently under construction on the Isle of Wight.

She is 7.5 metres with double steps.

N-8 Ali (the usual material used) is surprisingly resilient to the horrors of sea water.

Not sure but I think it may have been Tony Lewis's old boat that was racing - don't remember seeing it last season though .......

The RIB is being built by A & M Fabrications of Cowes - and the quality of work really is excellent.

It is going to be a demo boat for them - really to show the level of their work and that one-off boats (RIB or not) can be built relatively economically in Aluminium.

Otherwise the owner will use the boat for cruising and general boating - no plans to race it.

Certainly from a design point of view I have developed the hull and steps to make it suitable for all round use and not just to be a flat out race machine - although performance and handling should be very good.
