Only good comments from me.

I've had my 550 Waverider for about 5 months now and its been a fine, very capable bit of kit.

Handles great, good in the rough stuff, nice and quick up onto the plane and gives a comfortable, dry ride.

I used to use a 730 wiverider for work. Again, a great Rib but a little heavy. Well trusted Rib in rough seas though.

Hope this is some help.

Have a 14 year old 4.5m Gemini with a slightly younger 60 Yam. I'm told that that's as long as you can expect the glue to last. It has had a hard life in SA as a rescue boat and more recently in Poole UK as our fun machine. I paid 2,000 (equiv) for it in SA and it doesn't owe me a penny. It's heavily built and fairly wet but looks like it'll go on forever.

Very good RIBs.

The 5 mtr gives a little bit of wet rides but this poss is due to boat size and wave hight
