Rovers and RIBs (not the eating kind)

There's a forum that hails out of the UK for RIBs, rigid inflatable boats, which are quite popular as pleasure craft there. Here, we generally associate inflatables with sailing programs or as yacht tenders.

Nor sure if it's been posted before, but here's a link from that site for people to show their Rovers and RIB setup. Loads of eye candy.

I loved being a coxswain on RIB's. I spent 18 months in Alaska with them. I used to take the LE crews from the ship to the Fishing boats (USCG).

I came close to buying a real CT RIB a few years back, but my wife wouldn't sign off on it. So I bought a yellow diesel disco instead.

I've never heard them discribed as RIB's, I've always liked protector which looks to be the same basic thing.

The thought of towing some of those boats with my Disco or RRC is just scary...

That's nothing. You should see some of the cars people use to tow things in the UK and Europe. It almost makes you wonder why we feel the need to have such big rigs here.
