Currently have a Honwave 4m Sib with Honda 20hp, but considering upgrading to something a little bigger, in the 4.8M to 5M range, with an engine no bigger than 50hp.
What are my options , what to avoid, do I go with a proper rib and if so will I still be able to tow and launch with the Ford focus 1.8 Diesel(imagine I would anyway).
IMO going over the 4m mark has me leaning toward a rib rather than a sib ?
I also would prefer a 4 stroke motor, with electric start. It will be mainly used for fishing , so something with strong tubes is a must.
Fancy seats are not a necessity, especially if they take up too much room , nor is crazy speeds, around the 22kts would be more than enough for me.
Have been browsing the usual sites, but there are so many makes and models its hard to know whats what (Honwave was my 1st sib/rib after yrs of other boats).
Any info insight much appreciated
