Looking for my first RIB :-)

Hi everyone , ive just joined this forum and as the title states I am looking for my first pwc, I am looking for one between 4 and 5.5 m and I will be using it in the Irish sea around Angelsey north Wales just for leisure ie, a little fishing , days out ect ect with the missus and 6 year old son + friends with their jet skis and ribs .
I am hoping to get as much advice as possible from the experts on here, any help and nods in the right direction would be very much appreciated , cheers

have you seen anything that you like the look of yet?

my immediate thought would be an sr4 or sr5.4 if you want something to go when it is a little rough.

cheers

The chaps on here pointed me away from the rib I was considering, to my new SR4 and I haven't looked back. Its fantastic.

Easier to tow than my trailer, easy to launch solo, and bags of fun.
