Details

Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs) were invented in the UK in the 1960s as a solution to reducing the wearout of the inflatable lifeboats that were widely used at that time.

The Larsson "Zody" is my "bow" to the classic RIB of all time and of course it comes only in classic white color. It's beautiful, and any colorization will only detract.

RIBs are commonly 4 to 9 meters in length. The Larsson Rescue RIB is just over 6 meters in length and 3 meters wide giving this boat an appropriate mid-range scale in size. Outboard motors for RIBs range in power from 5 to over 300 HP. The Larsson Rescue RIB features the Larsson L-TEC 350 HP outboard motor.

There is an original standing animation for the captain at the controls, and there are four seats for crew/survivors. Two seats are in the side by side bench seat. There is a seat on the cushion in front of the helm and the fourth seat faces backward sitting on the life preserver in the bow area. Also in the bow is a small puppy enjoying the fresh air. Touch to make the puppy visible or invisible.

Water speed is governed by the Larsson nine speed outboard style engine so you can travel at speeds appropriate for this water craft. Top speed seems very fast when you are this low to the water. Speeds range from 3 up to full speed ahead at 21 knots. Reverse is set at 3 knots. Use the on-screen jump up and crouch down arrows on your viewer or the page up and down keys on your keyboard to change the speeds. There is a chat message telling you gear numbers as you change them. Steering has been tuned to reflect the action of a boat of this size.

You will hear the outboard motor start-up sound when the captain is seated at the controls. Then the engine idle sound begins. The engine underway sound is heard whenever you go into forward or reverse. The engine sound ends when the captain stands away from the controls.

There is water spray from the propeller of the outboard motor. You will also notice bow wave sprays from both sides. The spray turns on or off depending on the movement of the boat.

Key a "w" in chat to sound a classic bosun's whistle you can use as a greeting or alert.

Key "on" or "off" in chat to operate the blue warning flashing light on the bow.

Notice there are proper red and green navigation lights as well as a white stern light on the back of the outboard motor.. Touch the NAV light button on top of the captain's control stand to turn these proper navigation lights on if you are operating just before sunset until sunrise. Touch again to turn them off.

There is an advanced lighting system spotlight at the bow. Touch the yellow button on the steering column to turn the lights on or off. Be sure you activate advanced lighting in your viewer graphics preferences to use this feature.

The land equivalent weight is 33 prims, and the object physics have been adjusted appropriately. You can stand or walk anywhere inside the boat, and it can carry the captain and four passengers.

This vessel is sold as copy only. If needed, you can easily adjust your height on the steering wheel using your quick preference settings. If needed, touch the Larsson oval logo at front of the helm station of the boat. The blue resize menu will appear on your viewer screen.

Let me know if you have other ideas about cargo or other features, I am always happy to update my products with new features.

Thanks, best wishes and stay safe,

Lisle
