INTRODUCTION
Rhino Craft hulls are fabricated from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and are designed, developed and tested to create robust and virtually indestructible workboats for use with outboard motors as well as inboard diesels with stern drives or jet drives. Over the last 8 years the hulls have been proven in harsh offshore conditions impacting with solid and floating steel structures and have a customised forepeak structure for engaging in offshore bowcatcher boat landings. The craft generally employ 15mm thick HDPE pipe sponsons which act as heavy duty fenders for extreme offshore abuse. These sponsons are filled with polystyrene foam to render the craft virtually unsinkable. The craft incorporate bench seating with upstand gunnels, lifting padeyes, deck lashing padeyes, consoles and lockers. They are generally fitted with a bow step and hand rail compatible with conventional offshore structure bowcatchers. They are fitted with aluminium chain lockers, rubber D fenders, pontoon roping and scupper flaps for the selfdraining decks. For operational safety, the forepeak bowcatcher is designed as a separate structure that is welded to the basic hull. In extreme environmental conditions, severe impact loading causing potential damage to the bowcatcher will be superficial and will not compromise the integrity of the hull itself. The first Rhino Craft were built in 2003 for a client needing a relatively indestructible workboat for offshore bowcatchers. Despite the fact that Rhino Craft have almost a decade of proven reliability, we are continually evolving and improving to meet client needs. New designs are developed in co operation with our sister companies Wale Marine who have 25 years offshore experience and OIS Marine of the Oil Integrated Services Group who are well established marine operators in West Africa with inhouse naval architecture. On completion of an extreme offshore repair operation for PetroSA executed using a Rhino Craft the diving supervisor commented that any other workboat would not have lasted GRP would have been shattered, aluminium would have been ripped and conventional RIBs did not even warrant mention. Rhino Craft hulls require minimal maintenance and can be easily repaired or adapted by relatively unskilled staff. Some of the advantages of HDPE relative to other hull materials are listed below: ADVANTAGES OF HDPE VS FIBERGLASS & ALUMINIUM HULLS

RHINO 590 EHD

The Rhino 590 EHD is a heavy duty workboat designed for offshore bowcatcher structures. The forepeak structure is a separate structure developed for extreme abuse without compromising the hull. The craft can be loaded into a standard 6meter container, and can be fitted with either single or twin outboard motors. Craft can be supplied bare, to receive a tiller operated motor, or fitted with a console and skippers seat arrangement. An inboard diesel motor can be fitted if required, but our longer versions are recommended for these applications. General Features and Standard accessories: Sponson seating with upstand gunnel; Sponsons filled with polystyrene foam to enhance buoyant integrity; Rubber D Fendering Double D on forepeak and single D along the full sponson length; Heavyduty bollards mounted on sponsons forward and aft; Forepeak step up with removable stainless steel handrail received either port or starboard; 3legged webbing sling arrangement for offshore launch and recovery from mother craft; and Forward chain locker with aluminium hatch. Dimensions and weights: Length 5.9 m, Beam 2.2 m, Depth overall 1.16m, Light draft 0.5 m, Bare hull Mass 925 kg , Payload 1,500 kg

RHINO 590 GP

The Rhino 590 GP is a recently developed general purpose workboat which does not have sponsons, and lacks the same degree of robustness as the EHD, but is still well suited for standard marine operations and as a personnel transfer boat. As with the EHD, it can be loaded into a standard 6meter container and also has lifting points for use with a 3legged webbing sling. The standard craft is designed for use with a single outboard motor, but on request we can supply a modified transom version that is suited for twin outboards. We can supply the boat either bare, to receive a tiller operated motor, or fitted with a console and skippers seat arrangement as shown in the picture either uncovered, with a TTop cover or with a Bimini Top as shown. General Features and Standard accessories: Side seating with upstand gunnels; Side lockers beneath seating for general stowage; Side hull compartments filled with polystyrene foam to enhance buoyant integrity; Rubber D Fendering Double D on bow only; Mediumduty bow bollard; 3legged webbing sling arrangement for launch and recovery; and Bowlocker with watertight hatch. Dimensions and weights: Length 5.9 m, Beam 1.84 m, Depth overall 1.17m, Light draft 0.3 m, Bare hull Mass 600 kg, Payload 1,000 kg

RHINO 690

The Rhino 690 has primarily been developed as a highspeed diesel workboat for use on offshore oil and gas installations where petrol engines are not permitted. It can also be used as a small Dive SRP boat or as a personnel transfer boat, and is suitable for certain military/navy applications. The crafts beam is selected such that it can be transported in a standard 12m container with side fenders removed. The standard drive is an inboard diesel engine (recommended power range is 150 to 350 HP) matched with an UltraJet waterjet drive. As an alternative it can be supplied with a stern drive system in place of waterjet drive. For non diesel applications the hull can be powered by single or twin outboard motors. With respect to canopies we can supply the craft with either T top, GRP canopy, fixed stainless steel portal & canvas, or Bimini Top arrangements. Standard features and accessories: Spray rail chines for dryride and power efficiency; Jockey Console (tiltup for engine access); Heavy duty forepeak for offshore bowcatchers with removable stainless steel handrail; Polystyrene filled sponsons; 3legged webbing sling arrangement for easy launch and recovery from mother craft; Sponson mounted bench seating with upstand gunnel; Fore and aft sponson mounted bollards; Forward chain locker; 125L Diesel Tank; and Rubber bow and side Dfenders. Dimensions and weights (160 HP Steyr 20 knot Lightship): Length 6.9 m, Beam 2.48 m, Depth overall 1.65m, Light draft 0.55 m, Lightship mass 2,400 kg, Payload 1,500 kg

RHINO 800

The Rhino 800 is an optimised extension of the 690 (narrow beam) which has been developed in conjunction with our partners Oilfield Integrated Services (OIS) who are operators in West Africa. It is a powerful high speed craft designed for heavy offshore use that can be transported in a standard 12m container. It has an easily accessible and removable fuel tank for facilitating cleaning especially for use in areas where the quality of diesel is inferior. The diesel tank capacity is 230 litres. The standard drive is a Yanmar 315 HP inboard diesel engine coupled to a 251 UltraJet drive which is an extremely robust and reliable system. As with the 690 it can alternatively be supplied with a stern drive system in place of waterjet drive. For non diesel applications the hull can be powered single or twin outboard motors. The standard accessories are similar to the 690, but the 800 has triple rubber D fenders on forepeak and employs a solid HDPE defender protection strip on the sponson sides. Dimensions and weights (315 HP Yanmar 30 Knot Lightship): Length 8.0 m, Beam 2.32 m, Depth overall 1.95m, Light draft 0.5 m, Lightship mass 2,700 kg, Payload 2,000 kg
