Agreed but the Destroyer hull is very capable. According to Humber the Ocean Pro hull only comes into it's own over the Destroyer hull if you are very experienced and really pushing it. It's a top end tweak of fine tuning

Just to sidestep a little , on the original post there was a list of possible makes , , What material do you want it made from , beaing in mind Divers do carry things like knives and buckles so does the material have a deciding factor ? , Hypalon , Pvc OR PU. and do all the makes offer a choice?

After Repairing Both in the past , I personally would opt for Hypalon Everytime.

Your right, smilies deleted.

Like I said having been on a couple not a bad ride, however I have also had to do some re-rigging on a Ribcraft and was not impressed by the original fit out.

Also you only have to go here to see that there are issues with quality, and lets face it sealing hatches into a wooden deck is pretty basic stuff...

To all you Ribcraft owners
