Ribworker Jet Boats Precision Manoeuvring Display

Shaun White, who designed the Ribworkers (and is driving the yellow RIB), was asked to play around and demonstrate what makes these boats so unique: awesomely tough workboats, precision manoeuvring but also fast and fun (see the end bit).

Ribworkers are capable of power-braking or spinning on their axis – slowly for precision manoeuvring even at high revs, faster for jet boat spins for exciting passenger trips.

The first boat, built 37 years ago, is still working as a salvage and rescue vessel.

This video, shot some years ago, shows a display: all water users were warned to keep clear and that they would get wet and both RIB skippers were highly experienced.
