Oh I was expecting some coments likie that . hope we don't sink
In the size and power i wanted there simply wasn't enough space or storage on any ribs . that is 5.5m max 100 hp .
Shelter was also an issue , the family were only interested on sunny days as they just froze and moaned in anything but sunshine .
I wanted to sit side by side not in line as you do in smaller ribs on jockey seats .
The boat I have bought is a seamark 550 sc with a 90 etec .
I tried a demmo boat in the solent at the weekend with a 75 etec and was impressed with its performance , handling and dry ride , so hopefully the 90 will be even better .
It has a side consul with nice screen and small cuddy underneath , with enough room to store all the kit and get the kids changed out of the wind .
Hope it does what i think it will
