Personal taste innit? And to be fair it's still a really nice boat. I wouldn't throw it back in your face if you gave me one!

Spot on. Personal taste. Doesn't matter what we all like and think. It's his money and his choice

From that photo, it looks like the throttle control mounted tilt switch would be at your little finger. Is that right?

Do such controls come in left-handed and right-handed models?

I actually like the contrasting colour! But I think that the majority of the rib community here are practical people and would be thinking that light colours show dirt quicker.

Only if you hold onto the top of the control lever, which will give you pretty lousy control in a bit of chop.

If you hold the vertical part of the lever you'll have much more control, and the trim button should be handy for the inside edge of your forefinger.

well I'm a touch on the practical side, but when we bought the Revenger the seats were already fitted so no choice in the matter, got to say never been an issue so far, and it stood up to the wear n tear remarkably well, just needs a good scrub a couple of times a year

Speaking personally it purely aesthetic for me. I think a darker tan, like saddle leather or maybe a touch lighter, would maybe have been good. That "parchment" colour is just a bit wishy washy for me.

When I win the lottery and I'm speccing *my* brand new rib up I'll be sure to post some pics so you can all slag off my colour choices.
