New to Boating - Ribcraft Pro Dive 5.4??

Can anyone tell me when ribcraft discontinued making the 5.4? I'm talking to a seller at the moment and he tells me he has a 5.4. Doing my research I can find 5.3's and 5.85's but not much about 5.4. Any help greatly appreciated

I still think the Etec will come out on top. To the OP, RC still make them if you ask, you'll have to wait though they're pretty busy at the mo.

I've owned a RC 5.45, just FANTASTIC boat! Punches way above its size! Would definitely have another if the chance ever arose!!
