I've got the 5.6m version its been OK for me as was my first boat! It does slam a bit!
Have taken it round the Isle of Wight and down to Poole (from lymington) and various trips in the solent
I rarely take it out on windy days, I'm more of a fair weather boater!
did my pb level 2 on it its been fine for what I wanted but:
Since buying that rib I have been lucky enough to helm a few other ribs and notice the difference between them and now have a better understanding as to what I'd look for in my next rib!
For me it's been a great little boat for learning experience I can't knock it!
But I am looking to change to a more comfortable rib at some point in the future! Having used it I have a wish list now
I have a little jack Russell, he isn't too keen when it's slamming, mind you nor is the wife! But on fair days the dog is fine!
