Med or Deep V ?

My mate has Just been testing a rib Force6, and I am suprised to find the deadrise (at the bow I assume) is 20-22 degrees. Not exactly deep, arent ribs meant to be deep V.
My Sealine F36 flybridge is 44 at bow down to 20. Your URGENT comments appreciated as I am about to by a rib. CGN

Sun coast, being a cottage industry in the UK each manufacturer has his own views on what makes a good hull. So they range from almost flat to very deep. If you say what you are thinking of buying someone on here may have experience of it or try a search on the posts which are now very extensive.

Regards

Pete

In Brief

I've owned a shallow v, medium v and a deep v. I've also enjoyed outings in numerous other ribs with varying degrees of "V" formations (single chine & multi chine). I have concluded that I'd never again buy a RIB with anything other than a Deep V.

Hope this helps !

DEEP V

Try to go deep V it will become apparant when stuck in rough conditions as to the comfort of such a design
