Great British RIB Rally - What Rib?

I've just finished re-reading Paul's brilliant thread on the Great British Rib Rally and it got me thinking about, if I were to do it, what boat would I prefer to use? I like the sound of the large Scorpion's as they seem to acquit themselves well but if you go down the Redbay route you have somewhere to hide from the inevitable rain we get. So far I've only managed to decide that I would probably want diesel engines just for the ease of availability in remoter areas (ie Scotland) never mind which boat.

So what would be your ideal rib for doing this trip and is there any particular reason for your choice?

Scorpion, naturally. It's the only way to travel.
