Best Rib?

Why mine of course.. It's not sub 9 but its all I have. I think most people will answer the same way about their own.. If you don't have that confidence then why would you own it in the first place?

yes I was kind of joking about the Ribeye, it's fine in heavy seas but there are certainly better our there.

Those Humbers moored next to you look very capable...seems a bit of a waste on the Thames.

Sorry, I thought it was you with that fast 150 hp blue rib moored on the Thames in Chelsea.

It's another Will...I forgot. Apologies!

Depends on the rigout. most hulls are good at todays standard of build, some have their advantages though. I run an osprey derived hull which is the best I've had , over 2 others..... Dry ride, fast, & splits the waves, but it depends what you want TBH. What are your running conditions?Loaded?Passengers etc?

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
