19 May Redbay Go P5…
|Redbay Go P5…
The Redbay Stormforce 11 has been given plan approval by the Department of Communications, Marine and Natural Resources in Ireland, for a P5 License.
Update: 4 November 2005
Engine bay systems installed, engines installed. Seat bases fitted, console fitted, forward berths fitted. Windows and hatches are now fitted. We are now in the final stages of fitout, with sea trials and delivery now being organised.
Update: 14 October 2005
Hull and deck are bounded, tubes initially set. Engine bay lined. Windows and hatches have been cutout, console fitted. Seat bases are being made up, and some systems are starting to be installed.
Update: 21 September 2005
Layup of hull and cabin is complete. Internal structure has been completed, fuel tanks have been fitted and floor has been fitted. Both hull and cabin are now out of the moulds and are being set up for tubing and fit-out.
Update: 26 August 2005
Layup of both hull and cabin/deck is now well underway.
Until now, RIBs have only been awarded a P3 license by the Department of Marine, but the ability to be built to P5 is testament to the Stormforce 11’s capabilities and design features. The P5 license will allow the RIB to carry twelve passengers, as with the P3, but it will not have the same distance restrictions, and must be built under survey.
The first RIB, for a customer in Cork, will be built as the full GRP cabin with flush after deck, see Earnest (above) and the new Corryvreckan (below). Build is due to commence shortly, and progress reports on the RIB will be posted here.
