Wing Inflatables manufactures origi- nal equipment and replacement spon- sons for virtually any RIB. Whether airholding or air/foam hybrids, all of
Wing's tubes are U.S.-designed and manufactured, using 40 oz. industrial grade. 100 percent polyurethane coated fabric. The use of this specialized fabric, coupled with Wing's advanced construc- tion techniques and unique design. ensure a precise fitting, low maintenance tube incorporated within each RIB.
Combining the resiliency of Dow 2.2-lb.
Ethafoam. the strength and durability of a polyurethane sheath and the pneumat- ic shock absorption of an air bladder. creates the air/foam hybrid collar. In addition. Wing's air sponsons. which attach to any RIB hull, provide a soft impact and less shock to the vessel dur- ing boarding operations. Air inflated tubes also bend under pressure, thus offering shock absorption at higher speeds and increased maneuverability in rough seas.

Zodiac's new Ribster 530 Light Strike
Craft (LSC) amplifies the advantages of past designs to become a long-range combat rubber raiding craft (LR-
CRRC). The Ribster, a military folding rigid-inflatable boat (RIB), iis also suit- able for local law enforcement agencies seeking to improve their mission capa- bilities for maritime patrolling and to enhance the security of waterfront com- munities. Zodiac's patent-pending
Ribster series are the first military RIBs with foldable, collapsible and storable hulls. This combined advantage of the rigidity, seaworthiness, speed and com- fort of a RIB. with the convenience of a totally collapsible inflatable, makes it the right choice for professionals who need tough, durable boats, but whose storage or transport space is limited.
The Ribster performs like a RIB. but folds into a bag. Both the rigid hull and hard deck are comprised of stackable. aluminum pieces that make assembly a quick and easy process. The Ribster is easily assembled and disassembled by three persons without tools, and goes from "box to boat" in less than 20 min- utes. Measuring in 18 ft. (5 m), the new
Ribster 530 features a number of design improvements that make it "mission ready" for long range patrols. The
Ribster utilizes a heavy-dutv aluminum hull that is structurally reinforced for added durability and toughness.
