I can't fault the knowledge on here, I bought a SIB after taking advice from here a few years ago and now am considering something bigger again, I did have a Beneteau 550 but a matrimonial forced me to part with that sadly. I like the idea of a RIB and it would suit my needs nicely so am going to start looking

If you post your rough budget, desired size & layout, purpose, engine preference etc, you'll have more eyes on the lookout.

Nope! I've never known google translate spit out poor English spelling:

which was like it when I brought it .

when I brought it I wanted it looking the business so I got to work,I had all the upholstery redone in 1 single blue fabric which was not cheap (£450 ) being a very high weather proff material even down to all the ropes refitted with new ones (£50 ).

Then i had fitted a second Genuine Yamaha tank (£75) just in case I needed more fuel while out haveing fun .

This boat can light up anywhere IN the most dark nights out on the water BELEAVE ME .

It has also has had led lights fittid in each cupboard to see what you are doing .

I've never heard of "Stealth" ribs, but that could be a lack of knowledge on my part.
Caveat Emptor
Ever pulled a parascender?

I presume not as a 90hp will easily pull a parascender. In fact I used to use a twin harness parascender behind my old Fletcher arrowstreak with 85 Yamaha.

In which case, I stand "very surprised"
