Think you summed it up they mate, I drive a Volvo estate but it has 280hp and 420NM torque but does the towing trailer, full of shopping and going fast all in its stride which is probably why I like RIBs.

From my occasional watching of the Honda's on tv people seem to get flicked out the boat quite regularly.

Not totally convinced a hard boat can not be just as buoyant as it's rib counterpart, the American's use boston Whaler for all extended offshore work and they don't go straight to the bottom when full of water or cut in two, so I think the argument is better suited to a ribs stable platform idea when at rest or very slow speed, also those American boats that tackle those huge training seas are not ribs

Give you a better laugh than that i just sold my V70 T5 about 2 months ago, yep i did own a volvo and a very good car it was too
It had all that power but struggled to get the boat out at our slipway it was all or nothing it is about 30 degrees,going for a Toyota 3.0 Colorado.

And as The garFIsh says they 8 Russian bombers were launched last week, when someone threw Jon a rope to tie up next to him.

Oh no they're not!!

BTW Chewy, thanks for not embarasing me, oh meggastar....and you should listen to ribit, coz if you chainsawed you fib in two, it's be good for Fkk all, unlike a Whaler.

A bit too close a naked 'pin' and your blowup dream gets a rude awakening!

Chainsaws ain't too much of a problem in the North Sea at the moment, neither are pins, when either of them are I'll let you know.
Your obviously happy with your boat and I'm happy with mine, which isn't a RIB.
