My advice - if you need a cabin or a wrap around windshield to cut you off from the elements - stay out of them in the first place. And think of a warmer and gentler pastime - like knitting...
I don't think anybody would argue with you when you say you prefer the wind and sunshine in your face. In an ideal world there would be no need for the shelter this rib provides. However we don't always get to choose what the weather will be during our free time and a lot of the time it is pretty bad!
A lot of people like to cover a lot of distance over a very exposed coastline and this gives the whole family the oportunity to do that in weather that you wouldn't attempt to take the wife and kids out in, in an open boat. All of the people that own and have ordered these boats have moved up from open ribs because it allows them to do more off what they enjoy whenever they want!
All im saying is that what suits some people 100% doesn't have to suit another, same with cars, motorbikes etc...
Obviously we also build open ribs for those that prefer that option!!
