The Ribcraft 4.8 was completed by Goodchild Marine in 2013. The 'Fred Dyble' has been used by Caister Volunteer Lifeboat Service as an inshore lifeboat supporting the larger offshore RIB operating on the North Sea Coast. Most life boats are carefully maintained by their crews and receive regaular servicing and this vessel is no exception. A purpose designed launching trailer is included.
Rib Craft are designed for work and the fact that they are used as life boats speaks volumns as to their credability.
