Any suggestions on what size rib needed to ferry 6 passengers, also anyone know what the legal capacity for passengers on particular size rib is. I don't know anything about this type of boat, would appreciate any help. Thanks

suppose depends if its 6 people everytime, or 6 people at a push? or want to have space etc..... I mean my old Valiant 3.80 with a Mercury 25 on the back would take 6 people but not a lot of room left!!!!

Also depends on if it's 6 people and gear or just 6 people. 6 people seated? 6 people for a few hundred yards, or is it miles?

If it's a commercial venture (water taxi kind of thing) I think you need a dedicated seat per passenger. That's going to require a larger hull than a recreational boat would need (arguably, as the CG wants seats on either.)
