How about a tug of war?
I can't see you sinking even if he does manage to pull you backwards.
The money you save in fuel by not racing will pay for the beer!
Borrow a low pitch prop and you might just sink him.....

Considering most ribs today are using hard boat hulls which have had a tube stuck round them it dose seem funning how so many on here think so highly of ribs over hard boats!
Also fletcher hulls are till used to day in some highly regarded ribs

An assault is almost a SIB(sic)

There's not much V for cutting the chop.

Unless the chop is more than the fletch can handle, he'll lose.

I've found the Fletchers not bad on the choppy stuff !!
If it were two identical boats with the same cc engines but one is a two-stroke & one a four it would be game over .........
