+1 for 5m ribeye, you could have it with a flip over bench seat for the helm too if that is your bag!
Nothing wronge with Brig ribs, don't know who was behind upsetting the Ribnet massive as I do not think it was Brig them selves. More likily some internet marketing subcontractor brought in by the UK importers ( not the best move!)
Anther contender if you can stretch to bigger would be a Preditor 5.99 or I see they do a 4.9m Predator - MRL Intro

Threatening me was possibly a worse move. I don't respond well to threats...

I'd also guess it will be stern heavy so will be hard to get onto the plane

The fact it hasn't caught on and is not part of the regular catalogue says something to me.

I'd be looking at an RC5.3 instead or similar.

I'd certainly want to test it on the water before parting with any cash.
