Quality clip.
I like the idea of being able to ram stuff with the rib until you ram a piece of rusty metal on some old pontoon then BANG! get your puncture repair kit out and try repairing the bugger whilst your sinking sounds fun

Sorry I couldn'y reply earlier I was out ribbing today.

One of the great reasons for getting a rib is they turn wimps into men, when was the last time you saw a Ribster in a boat yard winging about the cold.

In a moment I shall post a picture which proves definitively why you need a Rib

I am pretty sure ribs are for women. Didn't Adam give one to Eve?

You've posted that fkkn picture nearly as much as Cookee posts that pic of the bananapike cummin 6th!

As I've said (many) times before, I/We cannot be held resonsible for the reliability (or unreliability) of other peoples hard boats, especialy John Burdens.

That's not strictly true!

Chris Strickland had his entire inflatable collar 'fall orf' his 9.5m Scorpion during a race, which stayed fully inflated, and just drifted about detached from the boat! ...fortunately, a Scorpion cabin rib is really a hard boat with a toob, so it didn't sink, but had it been the usual 'ironing board' with a collar, it may been a different story.

So, no puncture, but the whole toob was AWOL!

They're very silly those ribs!

NO!! if they did that, where would all the nutters go?....they might buy hardboats, and then where would be be! loads of camouflaged nobbas wiv big knives n trolly loads of safety kit (with back ups for back ups for back ups)

A very sorry state of affairs that would be.

Long live 'ribs', they're the equivalent of looney bins.

And as Roger Waters said, we got to keep the loonies off the grass, got to keep the loonies on the path.

We could all sit on the shore with rifles!!

Lets face it,

None of the "Big Players" are making Ribs, i wonder why that should be?

And, if i bump into another Fekkin "Naval Architect" Student working in a Chandlery spouting off how he is going to design the next ultimate RIB, I swear ill murder em on the spot.

Whats a RIB without a splashed Hardboat hull?

A friggin balloon and some knob jockey seats thats what!

Aye, thats as maybe Johnny, but they will have to go a long way to beat the pictures of you and your mates on your Go Kart or indeed, the picture of you sporting a "Mullet" whilst holding on to your Crusader.
