The guys with 4 -5m ribs would only do those journeys in the very best of weather and usually only in company...? Not sure I've seen anyone on here say they've done it in a SIB?
No not done anything more than coast hugging in it, I would take it over to France in the right conditions on a shorter crossing!
Like wise I have taken my 6m rib over to France in not very good conditions and would not do that again as the return was 5+ hours of hell
