RAYGLASS Protector Cabin RIB or Revenge 29

Hi I am looking for either of these two boats to use as a family / cruising boat. I I know the two are very different, any well maintained privately owned boats preferred. The thought of a cabin rib does appeal, any advice?

Yes, work out what you want and go and trial them, there is quite a difference between those boats, and a heap of things in between that might suit. A day in a cabin rib is a totally different experience to a day on a high performance rib.

Cabins take up a lot of deck space (and add weight etc) which is why they are less popular than they might be. Many cabin owners would 'never go back' but many never really use the cabin to its 'full potential' either.

Camper van, or sports car? Both nice to have, but for different reasons.

Like Poly says, decide what sort of boating you think you want to do. Then decide which boat will work for you.

Curious - why are all these experienced AdModistrators answering this on a Rib for Sale thread that the hoi-polloi can't reply to?

Medwards, I'm going to move this to a general forum - pls be aware that posts in the for sale section can't replied to by members and the forum is reserved for boat ads.

Ah, erm, because I was on my phone just browsing new posts and didn't see which section it was in. Thought it was quiet in here!

Thanks for tidying up.
