Deep-V ribs - manufacturer comparisons?
I'm researching into what deep-V RIBs are available from different manufacturers, at 5.5m or thereabouts, and would love to hear your experiences.
I'm sure everyone has their pet favourite RIB manufacturers - I'm a Tornado/Humber man, but haven't a clue about what the competitors have to offer in deep-v RIBs that can make headway in high seas without slamming (like an Avon;-), keeping a (relatively) dry ride, perhaps at the expense of stationary stability. The rib would be for diving - 6 divers or so, running heavily loaded on long runs in 'lively' seas, powered by 100-115hp outboard.
How's about a little "Complete this list" of comparable RIBs? The ones I'm familiar are already filled in, with what I currently consider to have the most desirable attributes at the top. The more common manufacturers I have come across in second hand sales are left for you to complete if you could please. Additions, corrections and justifications of your choices appreciated!
any others? ??
thanks all, looking forward to see what you all have to say
