Description: Practical RIB that will handle rough weather, cover ground quickly and has plenty of space. I’ve had a few engines on this over the years and this Mariner was by far the best. Never let me down. A few patches on tubes but rock solid and little wear, no sign of UV thinning hypalon. Holds air indefinitely, good condition. A tough boat we call ‘Canary’ which has seen some work but still has plenty of life left in her. Engine is spot on.
