Ok,I get tired of white plastic really quickly
After temping articles in the local paper,I headed out with anticipation to the San Diego boat show (with it's expanded inflatable section)
However just more of the same stuff
Lines of tenders and variations on the same theme. Nothing to indicate the RIB's usefulness and versatility as a primary boat.
Get some color in there/get some pod seating and decent consoles/get some decent hull shapes and layouts
The only decent RIb( the Raider I chased around the other week) was wedged in almost as a second thought with no literature or rep to speak to (not that I could ever afford one, mind you) That 300HP suzi on the back,alone is around the $25,000 mark.
At least Caribe had a good range of craft on view,and even Avon made an effort. (Anyone want a Seasport SE490DLX ?) Think I saw the same one here last year
However Zodiac had a disapointing show of a couple of open -pro's and that was about it.
Seems they still havn't got the idea of how to sell the product over here!
