Highfield 5m did very well on round Ireland. Not sure why rib eye don't go bigger... Its a yachty tender...

I'd add the Xpro to ur criteria.

Long and short... Aluminium is light so smaller engine = better fuel use.
Possibly more robust. If you do damage it.. Its a bugger to repair! You need it aluminium welded... Not as easy as some CSM and resin..

U wanting a console?

I haven't used one and I don't know anyone who owns one, but I can't help feeling they'd make an excellent alternative to a trailered SIB. I had a look at the Ribeye ones at London a couple of years ago and they seem well made with a good finish.

Small RIBs have never really caught on as anything other than tenders, but I reckon they could be the next big thing

I think and hope they will take off as a good alternative to an alumi floor sib
