Looking for a dead RIB

I am hoping to find a 9 to 10 ft RIB with leaking or destroyed tubes. An AB would be perfect and a West Marine might not be. AB, Caribe, Archilles, Avon, or ? I am in western Montana but something near the Great Lakes, or the left (Pacific) Coast would work for me.

There must be a bunch of these dead RIBs around Florida, too. That might work, too, since I am shopping again for my “last”ocean boat and I seem to find a lot to consider in Florida.
Free would be nice but I can buy one, too.
Thanks!

Re: Looking for a dead RIB

Man there a dead RIB hulls all over the Caribbean, free for the asking (because retubing them properly is not economically viable). In fact, I recently gave one away. Unfortunately, I expect they are as rare as hens teeth in Montana!

What do you plan to do with this carcass?

Re: Looking for a dead RIB

Okay, I have an old 10’ Caribe dinghy which I’ve just repaired, and it's holding fine – so far.
It also goes with the boat it’s attached to on davits. My 50’ brigantine schooner is now for sale as well. Take a look at HOME. The asking price $120,000 – so the dink is free.

Re: Looking for a dead RIB

Hello everyone.

I am new on this forum. Thank you for adding me.
Not sure I know how to post publicly yet.

I’d like to know if anyone has sailed from Baltimore to Lake Ontario and how long it’d take…

Thank you !

Corrado

Carrado, you posted your message in a thread started by someone looking to buy and old worn out dinghy. You will get much better responses if you create a NEW thread under the appropriate forum subject area. Not only will you be more likely to get better responses too, its also considered better "net'etiquite" than plopping an unrelated post in the middle of someone else's thread.

Re: Looking for a dead RIB

Friend of mine owns a liferaft sales/service co and also sells inflatables. He usually has dead ones laying around I've seen. Might call some service repair centers in your area

Re: Looking for a dead RIB

The glue fell apart holding my rib together, Nothing wrong with the tubes or any thing else on it,

It was 20 years old,

Local rib repairer wanted $1000-00 to repair it, guaranteed repair,

I bought a brand new Rib for $999-00 Delivered,

Repair just wasnt worth it,

Re: Looking for a dead RIB

I want to build a dink like the OC tender. Having the hull will likely help me move right along. I realize there is definitely more to it than just putting topsides on the RIB hull. A “certain amount” of lift from the tubes outboard of the hull affects the boat for stability and planing lift. I have been in a couple of old dinghies when a whole tube deflated…..with one we were a long way from the mothership but 3 of us still spent the day diving outa that old flaccid 10 ft AB.

Thanks for your question!

Re: Looking for a dead RIB

Great idea. I was in Portland a couple weeks ago! Seattle would work, too. Ballard Inflatables sold me a nice AB about 15years ago. I checked their website and I was steered away by a LOT of reviews saying how rude they were. I prefer personable service. I will keep looking. My Montana location makes it tough. Thanks to you all, though.

Re: Looking for a dead RIB

I'd give you my worn out Carib, but i'm hoping to get a few more years out of it, before I drop money on a new rib.

You might call Inflatable Boat Center – Zodiac's Senior Dealer & MILPRO Elite Dealer Blog in Portland, they deal with a lot of inflatable boats, and might have a lead on a old free one.

It's the strange way the forum translates a www URL. Go to HOME
If that doesn't come out its schooner dash britannia. dot com
It also prints properly on my signature
