Info on Ribquest

HI guys, can anyone give me their opinion on Ribquest RIBs, in particular the 6.3m. Looking for owners opinions and those that have just driven them.

Thanks in advance, DOUG

Had a ride on one of their 6.3's at southampton boatshow. Can't say there was much to criticise. Rose up onto the plane nice and level (unlike mine!) and quite a smooth ride though water was flat calm. Had a Honda 115 i think which did 38 knots with little trouble 4 up. Perhaps not finished off with as much finesse as some other manufacturers (including mine!).

Are these the guys that also make Hydropools/ whirlpool baths?

If so be worth asking Humber what they think of them!!!
