Cheers guys for the feedback.

Basically I'm looking for a wee bit more room than my 3.5m Honwave.
Still want to be able to dry launch and recover it from a trailer and want to be able to pull it out of the water (on launch wheels) when beach hopping.
Therefore i couldn't go much heavier than the Honwave.

Both these Ribs are more or less the same weight as my Honwave.

I initially thought of going down the polyethylene boat route but decided against it as I would need to get a long shaft engine and they are wet launch only from a trailer IMO.

I wanted a bit more speed for pulling the kids on rings than my Honwave could offer with a 20hp Tohatsu 4 stroke.

Didn't want to go much bigger or heavier than a 20hp engine due to upgrade cost and weight.

So it basically boiled down to wanting something a wee bit bigger, no heavier than my Honwave, better performing with the same sized engine.

A tall ask I though - but I think both these boats will fulfill my requirements without spending a fortune.

I can use my S/S Tohatsu 20hp 4 stroke on tiller

Shiny shoe - I'm going to have another look at the X Pro as I made a boo boo when I looked at it first time around.
Looked at the weight of one with a console and a few other add ons.
