nightmare of choice for 6.8-7.8

Hi, we have been and sold our bizz but now want another rib and hav decided on a ribcraft for various reasons.
Jason at ribcraft has given excellent quotes and we now face a dilemma whether to go for a 6.8 or a stretched 6.8 (7.4) or a 7.8.

The 6.8 and stretched jobby will do the job well and the 7.8 even better but there is a severe storage issue and the 7.8 is a lot longer due to its long trailer.

Does anyone have experience of the 6.8??? (ours will have 200 hp optimax and 4 permanent plus 2 double removable seats)
your comments are most welcome, particulary interested in chop /swell characteristics.

Hi Mike,

Did you see my e-mail?

I assumed that you were using it commercially - is this going to be for pleasure and for playing out?



P.S. I'm not biased at all. Oh no. 7.8 Offshore? Why would I say that?
