TBH I've been quite happy in an F7 with a 5.5 as much as my latest 8.5. If the kit is right and you have confidence in your gear as you should have, size does not matter
Well most of the time i would be running with me and just one other passenger..... I just like to push things a bit so would want a RIB that was comfortable getting pushed a little.... Obviously not too far

Why would you choose to go out in a storm

I suggest that you think of something affordable and easy to tow / launch. You won't go far wrong with something like a second hand 5.5m with 75 hp and it won't get you into trouble with to much power.

No insult intended but maybe some training and common sense would be a good idea before doing things like that

He didn't say that!!!

"Ok....opinions-The RIB that handles best in rough seas (most seaworthy etc) in other words if you were out in a storm, which sub 9m RIB would you most like to be in?"

A very valid and sensible question I thought!!!

When did i ever say i was going to do it? The reason I asked is because I want a RIB thats extremely safe.... What i was trying to ask is-What RIB would u be most comfortable in if you were caught in rough conditions....

I also have no intent to insult....
but there is no need to be so offensive, especially to a 'kid'

Cheers

That's a bit harsh - keyword 'if you were out in a storm...' Anyone not been caught out in worsening conditions?
