I'd like to see more cabin RIBs @7-8M, with less Blue piped white upholstery.

But most of all I'd like to see RIBs priced like similar sized hard boats.

Seriously, how many times has somebody come up with this notion?
Sorry iburry67, I'm not saying it won't work, it's just not a new concept.
In my opinion, different peoples use of a RIB is so varied, a one desgn concept is too much of a compromise to keep enough people happy.

I'll be really interested to see how you do, and pleased to be proved wrong.
Perhaps you sould arrange to get a few of us down to your factory, present the concept properly and get some feedback.

Should have gone to RIBEX Andy.

Can't remember who made it, but the Bowrider Rib was rather nice I thought.

Nasher.
I'll tell you what Nasher. If I'd have gone for the 7.2 Shakepeare which I nearly did before placing the order for the Osprey, I'd have moulded two bowrider console LH/RH and had a roller door joining the two halfs together and creating a weather protector to boot. Then I'd have made a bow cover that came up to the bottom of the screen, creating a tent like feature to allow camping or dry storage.
