ORCA® Cleaners’ Impressive Results

Keep your RIB (safe) clean

Regularly posts are being published in our Facebook group about RIB maintenance and the safe cleaning of the tubes.

This video shows great results of the cleaners proposed by Orca® Retail. It’s important you use safe products and who else would know this better than these guys. They’re the market leader for the most important brands of inflatable boats.

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.
