yes it was for me.

as i always said i suspected it's all relative. if i had one of the so called better handling ribs and i went to this i may well have found it wanting. since it wasn't like that in my case i'm happy.

the current owner of the rib actually mentioned he went down to southampton and went out on rib-x, ribeye and 2 more i can't mind the name of, all about the 5.5-5.75m mark and he didn't like their rough water handling or build quality in some cases compared to this strangely enough. the current owner has a number of the RYA quals and has taken his rib purchase very seriously in that respect. since this is only rib i've been on i can't comment on difference but he tested 5/6 before settling on this.......read into that what you will. i made my own mind up with an hour out on it before buying.

i'll get good pics at some point, only ones i have are from iphone and are useless.

cheers
