For a 4.8m, it's unbelievably dry! She is without a doubt the best sub 5m boat I have ever been on.
Given the hull shape, she handles seas well - however she is fairly light, so does get a little twitchy at high speed (I've had her at 37kts with a 60hp 4smoke bigfoot). Build quality is superb.
If I am ever fortunate enough to be buying new - Ribcraft are definitely top of my list!
You'd be more than welcome to a spin in the Uni boat if you're ever down this way.
