FC 470 ride vs. Achilles SIB
I've been considering the purchase of an Achilles SG-156, but there is a used FC 470 not too far away with a reasonable price. Much cheaper than a new 156, and just a bit smaller.
I'm wondering if the 470 guys on here could weigh in with an opinion on the handling and ride of their boats vs. experience they may have had with SIBs not intended for military use. Achilles advertises the Trigon keel, Zodiac their speed tubes. Just wondering how the 2 different designs would handle choppy waters. Would love to hear from anyone about how their 470s handle in general. I'm guessing the military design is for carrying lots of weight, and not necessarily built for comfort.
