Irish Sea is for girls big long swelly seas. North Sea chop, that's a different matter. Either way it's impossible to tell just by looking, the only way to tell is by some side by side sea trials.

True. But I can

and I can also draw your attention to this: Trade Membership

Payment in Potatoes (sorted, thanks) or Vodka (same as, but a decent Malt Scotch or two might cut it) is generally frowned upon.

In fairness there's plenty others actively selling from trade that's not paid up so as it stands I think he's good to remain as is, if you decide to start selling maybe not.

Surely having another manufacturer onboard to give an opinion or feedback is a good thing ? Especially if they are bringing a new concept to the table (which I'm not convinced this is btw)

Peter - Trade takes many forms. In the case of a used boat dealer - it simply means selling specific items that you have in stock. As such, any dealer can sell two ribs a year on here and not require Trade Membership

A RIB manufacturer is a more complicated situation - when does a general interest post become Brand Promotion? This thread is potentially interesting/entertaining and for that reason, you are still able to see it

Going into choppy waves I think there will be a big advantage but in a following sea I think you'll find the bow steers the boat and the stern will want to pass it. Perhaps you've got it right but I suspect it could be almost impossible to drive in some conditions. This info is provided on the basis of 'Don't ask me how I know this.'

That's why my new years resolution is to honestly test RIB in UK's sea.
