^ It's a different world, for sure but as I read more about RIBs I find them pretty damned cool.
Zodiac builds some RIBs, don't they? Are these similar to the UK/European boats you guys use?

Most Zodiac ribs you see here are of the pleasure/tender variety. These have much less vee. It seems most of the UK rib brands are offshore capable/deep vee/ocean going... Not all, but it seems like that's what their consumers expect. (someone from the UK can chime in here)

If you look around here in the US, you can find some more offshore capable hulls (Zodiac Pro/Hurricane or Avon Searider).
