RIBs ONLY Special Mug Series

Special Mug Series Designs

Dear RIBs ONLY friends,

The exclusive mug series “RIBs ONLY – Home of the Rigid Inflatable Boat” (see image above), is uniquely crafted. You can find them through the menu button “Goodies“, second from the left. But read on…

These mugs aren’t just items I sell for personal profit. There’s a meaningful story behind them as you can read below.

The Story

As some of you may already be aware, I am the founder of the registered non-profit organization For Autism NPO.

This cause holds a special place in my heart because autism directly impacts my very close family (autistic child video).

The mission of our NPO is to promote autism awareness in an enjoyable manner. We achieve this by engaging in kite flying activities and providing free kites to children during the kite meetings.

However, to sustain these efforts, we require financial support. Therefore, I have launched a modest webshop called MugsBlizzBazaar.com, through which I hope to raise funds to further our mission.

All proceeds go to our mission.

Buying is Promoting Autism Awareness

So, buying* a mug for yourself or as a gift for someone like this special mug series or others, means saying yes to promoting autism awareness.

Thank you deeply, and know that you have the enduring, heartfelt gratitude of the children.

*Due to intricate tax complications, my webshop cold be unable to serve your needs in the country you’re living in.

PB Europe: Cool Protector Boats and Scorpion RIBs

PB Europe: Scorpion RIBs and Protector Boats @ RIBs ONLY - Home of the Rigid Inflatable Boat

PB Europe

The company is the exclusively appointed European Distributor for Scorpion RIBs and Protector Boats (Rayglass).

Ian (Andy) Andrews is the Brand Manager for PB Europe and Ancasta for Protector Boats and Scorpion RIBs.

In this post I’ll focus on the Protector RIBs.

Protector RIBs have a track record of proven operational excellence in extremely challenging waters worldwide, this watercraft serves as a robust platform for a range of commercial applications.

Encounter them in action at prestigious events like the America’s Cup and Sail GP races, where they serve as indispensable support vessels.

I’ve posted articles and videos of the British built Scorpion RIBs as well as of the Rayglass brand that build Protector RIBs in New Zealand.

Awe Mercury Joystick Steering Single-Engine Vessels

Mercury Joystick Steering Pioneering Since 2007

Launched in 2007, Mercury Joystick Piloting was initially integrated with Zeus pod drives for larger sport cruisers.

This pioneering technology empowered users to effortlessly control throttle, shifting, and steering of multi-engine boats single-handedly using a joystick.

Now in 2024, the company launches the system for single-engine vessels.

It negates the requirement for boaters to employ both hands for throttling, shifting, and steering during low-speed manoeuvres like docking.

Some may argue that this represents a decline in navigational proficiency.

Here are more videos about using a joystick.

️CITO: Launch of a Cutting-Edge Norwegian RIB Brand

️CITO RX7 Norwegian RIB Brand @ RIBs ONLY - Home of the Rigid Inflatable Boat

Greåker, Norway, Based CITO Shipyard

In 2023, Rino Berntsen founded CITO Boat, based at Greåker, Norway, driven by his deep passion for boats and extensive expertise in the field of boat building garnered over numerous years.

That’s What We Like to See

The first model presented at BOOT 2024 was the CITO XR7.

They use Vinylester, which is stronger than ordinary polyester. Also 4-axled fiberglass mats combined with Kevlar as well.

Future models are the XR9 (featuring a console and a bed) and the XR11 that incorporates a pilothouse.

It has minimal weight, and a low center of gravity.

The V-Air step hull generates enhanced efficiency and lift. Rigged outboards are from 200 to 300 hp.

What drew my immediate focus was the sleek and minimalist design of the steering console. I’m intrigued to see how clients will respond to this.

Enhanced by high-back suspension seats from Ullman Dynamics, the driving experience becomes truly smooth.

So proud to share that Ullman Dynamics is a good Friend of RIBs ONLY.
