    This fast rescue rib was designed for the Coast Guard (not allowed to mention the country).
    The boat is completely self righting without the help of any mechanical self righting bags.

    Is the craft on your homepage going to the Turks?

    The picture I hot-linked (liked) is just very cool.

    That boat has been already delived. 24 boats was built and the last were delivered about a month ago. have a look at the movie clip. This boat is self righting and rights itself in 5 seconds. we have lifted her upside down, flipped over trying to test the mechanical self righting bag without any luck. it rights to quickly.
