Is there a reason why you've narrowed it down to these two RIBs? Plenty more choice out there in that size/price range.

Wrong on both counts I'm afraid, but don't let the facts get in the way of a good yarn!

LOL

Sadly I've not got the time to dedicate to a good old bitch fight today I'm afraid chaps but if GSW has any questions about the Ribeye 500 I'd be pleased to answer them (and qualified to answer them too, given that I own one! ).

i did my PB2 in a Ribeye about 5 or 5.5m. On the 2nd day we went out in a force 6 and it was great fun - waves were about 8' or so and I was very impressed with the way it handled. We got VERY wet but it was great fun. Boat had an 80hp yam 4 stroke on it. the instructor has had the boat for about 4 or 5 years and no problems. Landings off the waves were quite hard though.
