re rib

have owned a avon 5.4 and find the avon 6.20 rib better for diving in rough seas must be the length
its just a personal view
can you back up your statement that ""Certainly more seaworthy than an adventure which has a poor reputation on here for quality/seakeeping, perhaps not a "true" rib either ""
i have not seen any bad info re the avon adventure range on this web site???

haveing had a rib for over 30 years now i still feel a high nose is beter in rough seas
it was just a comment

thanks
stephen

Totally agree, a high sheer Bow is better in the rough. Our humber ocean pro takes it quite far and is excellent for it. Our old sr suffered at displacement speed due to the low sheer too.

Re the adventure I've never been in one but search the site and there are a good few threads where many people lambast them. Here's one long one for starters.

Avon 580 taking on water

Though others do defend too!

A rib for one person does not automatic fit another one. If you want to go in 4 meters waves in 15-20 knots, or if you want the stability a well designed ribboat can give in 50+ knots in 0,5-1 meter waves or even more. I prefer this style especially with the hard nose in high speed.

A clue is technohull, renegede, atlantis, clyde and ppg marine.
