Ribs.

CPA owns one Rigid-hulled Inflatable Boat ("RIB"), purpose built for diving. A Tornado (grey tubes, back) - purchased in May 2000, and used most weekends during the diving season for local diving on the South Coast. At bank holiday weekends, the Tornado is often taken further afield for camping/B&B diving expeditions.

Our RIB is a Tornado Viking 580, and at 5.8m (19ft) long is the ideal size for club use. Having been bought with the aid of a generous grant from the Foundation for Sport and the Arts, it is extremely well fitted out.

As well as all the standard fittings and safety gear, this one has:

  • Yamaha F115 AETX, 115hp fuel injected 4-stroke outboard with stainless steel prop
  • Honda 5HP 4-stroke auxiliary outboard
  • Hydraulic steering
  • 125 litre stainless steel fuel tank
