Re: RIB recommendations

You will be ahead of the game getting a hypalon RIB.The pvc ones dont repair very well.They do not like heat either.Life of the tubes if well taken care of is around ten years.Then they start degrading quick.Leaks,demaminating or just coming apart.
I have several buddies that have RIBs for their sailboats.Some are pretty old and abused but they are to get from the boat to the dighy dock or tiki bar.Dont go cheap or old for a RIB that is going offshore.
