I don't like the looks of that thing.
It looks like a bus stop.

No bus, it's the 'bus stop'. Try taking that.

We'll I'd like to see a retractable hard roof on a cabin RIB, would give best of both worlds. Hard core, open to the elements action for the Boy's and safe family runaround with overnight stops for the Missus.

To my mind you can always add a canopy for when you're on board overnight, or even something for cruising in bad weather, but I wouldn't want to cruise around during the summer with a fixed roof. Sort of defeats the object in my opinion, where as a removeable one gives the best of both worlds.

Depends what you want from a boat... ...and where you sail... ...the type of trips you make... ...how flexible you are on when you go... etc. Most people don't drive soft top cars - because as a practical tool it makes sense not to; those that do often have another option or are willing to make a compromise on year round comfort for a few days enjoyment in the summer.
