My thoughts which led me to the Solent.
I've seen some good things written about the Solent and the Ribtec, and have personal good experiance of both.
The Yammy although a good engine is a bit small for a 6M boat in my opinion.
In a choppy or confused sea the Ribtec is good, but the extra length of the Solent would smooth things out for a better ride.
The Solent has a lot more space on board than the Ribtec.
I just don't like the look of the Ribeye. Sorry but that's just a personal opinion.
The only real downside to the Solent is the extra weight, length etc if you are towing it on the road a lot, which dependant on the distances involved might make me consider the Ribtec again. But bearing in mind the location, I didn't think long distance towing would be involved.
