Great Lightweight RIB!

By Rum Runner

from Aberdeen Washington

Comments about West Marine Foldable RIB-310 PVC Rigid Inflatable Boat:

This RIP is currently being used aboard the Tall Ship, Lady Washington, as the dingy/workboat, w/Honda 9.9 Four-stroke.
Concern for PVC construction wear and tear (adding chafing gear), but the weight and rough water handling shine very brightly! Huge step up from AL 290 Hypalon it replaced.
Do not see issues with folding transom.. do not know what "hinge" the previous reviewer refers to...

    Comments about West Marine Foldable RIB-310 PVC Rigid Inflatable Boat:

    The inflatable was purchased in early July 2016. when launched it immediately had
    a slow water leak on the Port side floor to transom joint. I immediately contacted the
    WM store and they agreed to help on this issue when the season is over. I choose to wait so I would
    not loose 2+ weeks for repairs
    Since the leak is a fabrication problem I am very concerned about any repairs and
    how long they will last..

    Great idea but needs work on the design.

    Comments about West Marine Foldable RIB-310 PVC Rigid Inflatable Boat:

    I was quite disappointed when the hinge came unglued on my first use. Clearly a manufacturing error. The clear silicone just peeled off, allowing the bottom of the boat to fill with water. I will replace it to see if the next one holds better. I still need to see how this works in chop with the engine. The hinge is held closed by the pressure of the filled tubes (no bolt). If it fails again, I will go back to a non-folding model.
