Solent RIBS

You could add Solent RIBs (http://www.solentribs.com/) to your list. They may meet your requirements too. They should be present at Southampton. Clearly the thing to do is try as many as you can.

Most definitely ... am based at Trearddur so tend to be up at the other end of the straights a lot (Aberfraw, Llandwyn, Caraerfon, nefyn etc.)
Did an Ireland trip earlier this year with humper and Ribster Rache. Moored overnight at Howth Marina and got B&B ... great trip ... even though we could have done it for about 1/8th of the price on the ferry

Jim - Cheers

MonoMickey - I''ll keep an eye out for you, I'll be in a blue 18ft Maxum with a wakeboard tower for a few months yet...

Julian - Thanks, have already seen it, looks just the job but really not a fan of the colour scheme... plus there's no mention of trailer. If I go second hand I really want to go sub 20k.

[QUOTE=timw;259891] Superb choice, well done.

Despite being the hight of luxury, performance and style, Ribeye RIBS can take the most severe punishment without any harm.
Mine was a true working boat for several years as well as being used in extreme offshore conditions which it handled with aplomb.

Brilliant!!!! Twim, you crack me up.

Just returned from checking out TopBanana's 5.8M Osprey Viper Max - I am totally blown away, awesome looking boat.. Really think the 5.8m would be a great boat for us....

Looking forward to Southampton now so I can check it out against the competition.

Yep, the 5.8 is a nice boat
