In case you were wondering if, in this age of specialization, there was a boat show devoted to rigid bottom inflatables (RIBs), the answer is yes. If you happen to be on the Isle of Wight in the U.K. between the 11th and 13th of May you might want to stop in at Cowes Yacht Haven and check out RIBEX, reportedly the worldâs only international boat show dedicated to the RIB market. Suzuki Marine, manufacturer of four-stroke outboard engines, has just signed on to be the official sponsor of this yearâs event
. Can a boat show devoted to small waterplane twin hull (SWATH) boats be far behind?
