Gentlemen,

It is probably for me as a maritme F-wit to point out that all the above is true, however, a poorly set up boat can still scare the living sh1t out of you. Our Delta has an engine thats slightly too heavy this doesnt endear her caring side to you?

But its still one of my favourite searches on B&O....

For the real rough stuff I'd be telling you it would be an 8.4 sea rider. Also Tim Griffin hasn't mentioned Sowlints yet

Hardly a good comparison with your Redbay is it! in fact can you compare any 5.5 bote to a 7m+ boat for ride comfort. I accept the Dash's were wet boats

Though the Redbay is bigger it doesnt have as high a bow as the delta. delta just felt a bit topply compared to the redbays. Can remember getting a bit wet in the delta when i almost fell out!!! still cracking boats though
