It just proves what I have always said about “Which Sib is Best” debates Fenlander.. the best one is the one the person posting owns.(or sells)
In my experience .. ALL boats are compromises.. each and every one has good and bad points. If there was one perfect model for everyone..all other brands would have gone bust.. simply because I doubt if any of us are silly folks with our money..so we chose what suits us best.
As I own both a Floored SIB and an F Rib .. I hope Im totally unbiased in this instance...but going by Ashwatkins requirements and specifically wanting brand new (Which both of us can fully understand as we both wanted new ourselves this year ) I think he has made the right choice..and is the boat I would have bought under his circumstances
Another debate for outside this thread is which boat I would prefer to be in 2m waves.. I wont go too much into that here except to say .. I keep my Quicksilver 430 for a reason.. but I love my Frib to bits for speed and wave jumping with its 6HP outboard..but it is of no use for the OP’s requirements
Enjoy the new SIB Ash..its a great setup and totally suited for your requirements
PS..re reading my post.. and for Clarification Fenlander ..I know you offer sound advice ....and I agree totally with you
