IMHO if you're putting babies and a dog on board a boat you need a cabin and a more enclosed cockpit than a rib can provide.

where are you planning to keep it (on the water or on a trailer - if so what will you be towing it with)?

The kids will only go out in good weather, and not for long, as for storage, out the water on the tralier.

I'd be inclined to agree. We have a two year old and only take him on the boat when its nice and calm. He doesn't appreciate a face full of spray! And although he can talk reasonably well for his age he never tells us he is cold (even when he starts to turn blue!). When he is on the boat he sits firmly on mummy or daddys knee and that can only last for an hour or so at the most.

There are plenty of people on here who would (and have) sung the praises of seariders and ribcrafts and both are very capable boats. If you want to see / try / get opinions on lots of ribs then its probably worth going to RIBex in the middle of May.

There is a lot of personal taste involved too. I personally prefer a rib to look a bit "tough" and am not a major speed freak so I prefer more traditional looking boats to either the modern sleeker designs or the more "mediteranean" designs.
