Would have thought a heavy hull would have helped more with the ride!

Must say I had wondered about the flat 'pad' at the back though, thought it looked strange.

Ideally I'd like a project boat similar to this but with a better hull.

Yep, thats a project alright! Good value at current price too.

I'd be tempted if the garage was bigger!

Its not a project, but I quite like this (with a view to fitting bigger engine of course)...

Suprisingly I find myself agreeing with the Nobber;

Why not? Aren't they both deep V boats that could suit cruise/ski use?

Just keeping my options open at this stage!

I have just purchased a 2005 Ribtec 655 with a Yamaha 150 HPDI, performed faultless on sea trials in the solent with a F5 SSW. but now I'm worried.... have I purchased a duck on water, all my digging for reviews etc, sounded very positive

It's the camel trophy ribtec that's a bit naff (it looks kewl but doesn't really perform as well as it looks)... I'm assuming yours is a plain and simple open rib, console and a couple jockey pods. Upload a photo...
