Jeff, I'll give you a knife, and you try and 'puncture' Chaos's P21, then give him the knife, and see if he can 'puncture' your boat!

Reckon I know who'd come off worse!

I reckon you could 'fillet' a rib in about ten mins, and give you the toob back in wheelbarrow!

And lets not forget how seaworthy a rib looks when it's 'naked'!

Yeah right, where as with a rib, you can pull a russian Shotputter, or an Austrian cablecar kickstarter.

What i cant understand is this:

In all the manufacturing businesses i have worked in, a very important part of the business is finding out what the consumer wants and then producing it.

The Marine Industry is the only industry that i know of that does not follow this tried and tested rule. What i have seen on many occassions is someone producing the most rediculous and outragous products (like the rib with wheels ), and then set about convincing the world that this is what it wants!

It appears to be an Industry in which the customer is told what he can and cant have rather than an Industry that supplies demand. (Especially in this Country).

I always thought that the Construction Industry was in the Dark Ages, but the Marine Industry is absolutely Neo-lithic.

Anyway, unless you work for the MOD or the Oil Industry, whats the point in owning a RIB?

I can only think of one reason.

We all know that just about the most stressfull situation you can find yourself in is when berthing your boat with insufficient experience and a jolly crowd of spectators. (I know ive been there many times).

Couples have divorced over the stresses of boating.

However, you can take a RIB and ram it into just about anything and get away with it with a laugh, a flippant remark such as, "Sorry, I dont know whats happened to this reverse gear", this is usually followed by the embarrassed laughter of the crew.

(This is an old chestnut employed by sailors of old "Sea Shanty's" that have probably seen less than 1 hours mechanical maintenance in the last ten years).

Lets face It, Ribs have a place. . . . . . .

I've seen steel supertankers broken in half, but I doubt even you could have done it with a fillet knife

How come none of you rib nobbas have jumped to defend the "hard bottomed armbands" then?

With the exception of Wavejumper (who only bit cos his prowess was being called into question), and JW who correct me if im wrong has tried to stand by the old "Goose", no one else has profferred any good reason to own one of these "Fugly pus balls".

When Jesus said that the meek shall inherit the Earth, there was no mention of rigid inflatable boats was there?

1. They look stupid



Apologies in advance for any offence caused.
Much offence caused i think Ben.
