Are you saying that you got dropped into the midde of the Atlantic from a ship. In which case what a load of bollox
So you happened to have a bad experience in a badly laid out Solent, WTF has that got to do with the origial question? I have been in an SR4, a 5.4 and I have owned a 5.2 meter rib, now own a 6.5
Trust me, I know which I would prefer to be out in the solent when it kicks up rough.
I actually prefer the 8.4m Searider I had... but for kicks driving the 4m in rough stuff is crazy fun!
The 5.4m was launched from a ship yes, to do transfers and in the very big swell of the Atlantic was great fun.
As Fishface has now said he would consider a 5.4m searider get it.. much better than the 4m version in the rough...
BUT if can only have a 4m boat then in it's class searider is best.
