The big negative for me is the concave shape of the aerotech floor.
If money were no object I'd have one - but not high on my limited budget for a replacemeny for my Honwave at the moment.
Similar sized rib with aluminium hull would spank it rotten in a chop☺
I take it you have been out in one?
When it is getting a bit lumpy out on the water the deep v at the bow gives you around 2' of depth so you very much sit in it rather than on it as you do with most of the others I have seen, or used!
My only negertive would be it is narrow for its length but if it was wider you would have to sacrifice rid quality.
Bought mine 8 years ago when it was less than a year old, both my brothers in-laws bought sibs too 1 a quicksilver 3.8 hd with a mariner 25 hp marithan and the other a tohatso equivalent.
