Just been looking at his site again and lifted this

"The two most popular of our RIBs are the 6.5m and the 7.5m both excellent RIBs but are quite different.

The 6.5m is an ideal Dive RIB, because of the Hull shape it will easily get up on to the plane with the smallest of HP. The 6.5m are a shallower V hull with 18" tubes giving maximum stability when at rest. This makes an ideal starting RIB whether you want to use it for Diving or a family cruising RIB.

The 7.5m is based on a very deep V and has standard 18" tubes which tend to run clear of the water giving this RIB very good high speeds and excellent capabilities in rough sea conditions, because of this the 7.5 is not as stable at rest as the smaller 6.5 but has much better sea keeping capabilities."

No, Simmo's just come back from Guernsey and told us that the web-site is out of date. Do try to keep up, Paul!!

Your homework is to read from here: http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?...&pagenumber=18

Surely you're not thinking of dumping poor little Zebedee so soon? You are a cruel and callous man!

As both Jahno and I are from the East Midlands of England I don't think this phrase comes into it. Bearing in mind your origination Paul, you have clearly become one of these brainwashed into thinking civilisation stops at Watford and it's just a wasteland north of there!

Ok, the website is very out of date.

Most if not all of the Prosport hulls are 23.5 degrees. the 6m included.
The 6.5m mould (yes it is a different mould) has been replaced since the discription on the website and is now an incredibly deep vee at 26 degrees. So it is the deepest of all the Prosports.
Jason might confirm this but thats my understanding of what he said.

Thanks Richard upto speed now

LOUISE - you taught me well - don't settle for second best keep looking

Ian - As you point out yes I live in the south and am also from the south and from my point of view civilisation stops east of Howth. Thinking about it, with my origions, I have more in common with NWribsters location than you guys from the midlands.
