    A day ago I saw a self-made PVC "RIB" like boat. The boat had a v-hull like a RIB has, and the rest of the boat was PVC. From a distance it looks like a RIB, but it isn't inflatable. I think this boat is very cool because it is less vulnerable.

    I've never seen a boat like this, and I want to know more about it. Has someone also made a boat like that ? Any further thoughts about it ?

    Excuse me for my English, I'm from Holland..

    That's a RBB (Rigid Boyancy Boat).

    Search for RBB on Google and you will find somes builders.
