I do not think that we are on disagreement here. This is exactly the point I am trying to make.
Cheers everybody

Cabin ribs - more

Just to continue the theme here are some pictures of a Parker 630 cabin rib which is used for inland water rescue.

I suppose this could be used for leisure say weekend fishing.

And just to continue here is the view from the stern. The other 2 ribs are also Parker 630 but open. All 3 ribs are fitted with the Mercruiser 1.7 TDI engine and Alpha 1 drive

Here is a view of the inside of the cabin of the Parker 630 . Not much room but can seat 3 persons . Lots of space however for navigation equipment

I suppose this now covers the cabins on smaller ribs

Is the way these photos were take or the cabin RIBs (and I'm not a specialist on RIB construction) sit quite heavyly in the water?? Is just a small observation and not a critisism (I hope you realise).

Yes good observation. There is always something for something . This is the same type cabin as used on the 750 and 800 so I suppose it may seem a bit on the heavy side for a 6.3 mtr rib but it planes and handles well.
The jockey type seat for the driver has proved to be a much better arrangement than a typical chair seating

At the right price.
