Hi Ruari
Only really are two RM or Sports Boat. & Rib use them both but RM is all ribs where as SBR as name suggests has them both. A matter of what u want I find them both very useful and informative. Cooker on here subscribes to SBR Hope this helps.

There was a topic on this a while back with lots of opinions, personally I think they are both a waste of time and not worth the money although it may be worth taking up an offer that one of them had - (3 issues for a few 's or so that you can then cancel after a while). Unlike something like Boat Mart they appear to be aimed at the very affluent, 30k - 100k + market and full of 'filler' articles about places to vist etc. Have a flick through in Smiths before you subscribe - not sure you will really find any useful buying articles or info aimed at 'average joe' and his Searider.

Thanks for the advice guys, I was thinking about it because I seen Rib magazine offering a years subscription for 20, thought it might be worth it. Thanks again

Actually I write for them - I do the monthly race pages and other occasional articles - it's about 1 RIB review to 2 hard boat reviews, but I would buy a copy or two of each and see what fits your personal taste - like Top Gear sometimes it's nice to see what you can aspire to!
