thanks everyone,

I was trying to match up similar boats, the mid 90`s 20` outrage whalers which are the blue water/ offshore boats with deep vee and maxium rating of 225 hp due to deep vee., compared to earlier whalers and post 2000 that have max of 175hp due to less aggresive hull and lighter weight. This would fall in line with a comparison of the zodiac searider vs zodiac hurricane of same size.

I know they both have there cult followings and both are highly regarded sea boats.

Thanks to all for not letting this thread become a p*ssing match

Come on guys, lets get this in perspective . A rib has a solid hull with an inflatable tube around it. Even a chain ferry would be a rib if it had one. It doesn't mean its going to perform well.

Al, isn't that a cat hull? They're touted as being pretty good in going through chop and swell.

Don't confuse the cathedral hulled Whalers (13 - 19', I think) with the Offshore models (now 23 and up, or used to be.) The Offshore boats have a more conventional hull shape, with a deep V. The cathedrals had the sort of triple keel design that slaps pretty good in the rough stuff.

Still, for me, it's a RIB.

Hi Jky,
you're exactly right. It's a rib cat. I was just trying to illustrate that a hard hull with an inflatable fender round it means you have a rib. Regardless of hull shape or design. You're exactly right about V and cathedral hull whalers too.
As for the performance of the RIb Cat. I didn't like it at all but you can be sure that some folks swear by them.
I've attached another pic to try and illustrate my point. :-)

Yeah well cat drivers always frown on monohull guys. Not sure if it's actually based on performance, or the pain of having spent the money on the cat hull.

A buddy just picked up a 21' Parker center console. He's got way more deck space than my zodiac 733 will have, especially forward. The hard deck flares out for added space. Not sure about speed or performance since my boat is still just pieces, he's got a 175 i'll have a 250. The 733 is rated for 18 people his Parker is rated for 10. His boat will weigh at least 1000lbs more than the 733. That's all I got for you. Either would do nicely. He doesn't have to tow his, mine will live on a trailer.
