rigid hull inflatable boats

Hello and welcome


Interested in inflatable boats both rigid hull and soft hull inflatables? It looks like you may have found the perfect place for some onshore adrenaline rush! Well, you have come to the right place, hotRIBS, the very first RIB e-zine is still going strong after some 20 years online.  

Now refreshed a little, but we still have those essential articles.   For example how to find out what tube material is on your inflatable boat and just as important, how to repair them.   Some technical articles too on setting up your RIB for best performance. These are from industry experts along with our staff writers with some 30 years of experience using inflatable boats.   Read the views from Bellows, a long-established ribster and if you have a good story to tell we'll publish that too.

Purposefully we have as our new normal opted for a little of the 'old' way. We will provide you with a hard copy of our rigid hull inflatable boats, RIB Buying Guide which includes a 40-point checklist.   This useful guide could simply save you hundreds of pounds.

Hopefully you will find something of interest in our posts and of course check out our Facebook page using the icon at the top of the page.   The icons below are to share the site with your friends if you like. Please email us if you have any comments to make or wish to make a contribution.
