Discovery Channel show profiles boatbuilder

Ribcraft, a leading manufacturer of professional grade RIBs, will be featured in an upcoming episode of “Some Assembly Required,” a weekly Discovery Channel series.

The episode featuring Ribcraft will first air at 8 p.m. Sept. 4. “Some Assembly Required,” hosted by Brian Unger, filmed the Ribcraft process of building a RIB and learned how one is made from the people at Ribcraft.

The premise of the show is to provide a complete step-by-step explanation of how something is made, and explore the reasons for manufacturing and designing a product a certain way. 

"All of us at Ribcraft take great pride in the product we offer our professional and recreational customers and we're excited to share what we do with the ‘Some Assembly Required” viewer,” said Matthew Velluto, Ribcraft's director of marketing, in a statement. "We were thrilled and honored to be contacted by the show.”

“Some Assembly Required” airs 8 p.m. Thursdays on the Discovery Channel. For programming information, visit www.dsc.discovery.com or check local listings.
