The Complete RIB Manual


Dag Pike, author of more than fifty maritime books and holder of numerous power boating records including the Virgin Atlantic crossing with Richard Branson, has drawn on his vast experience not only from these adventures but also from his one time employment as an RNLI Inspector of lifeboats. Present in those early days of the development of the first rigid hull inflatable boat, Dag has written the definitive guide to the handling and maintenance of these high performance powerboats.

The Complete RIB Manual is the book to own whether you are a professional using RIBs as part of your everyday life or an adventurer or fun seeker using them in your leisure time. What better way to learn about the skills and techniques needed to use these unique high power to weight ratio performance craft than from a world top expert. In the right hands these powerful craft can be handled, maintained and managed to give years of service life in a safe and effective manner.

We can assure you this is a not to be missed manual. The book is to be launched at Seawork this June which is celebrating 50 years of the RIB.
