These ribs really have to be tried to be believed.
After your first test run you wont need to consider anything else.

I wouldn't mind sea trialing one of your boats. I notice from the photo that it was a tidal race you were in rather than heavy seas.
Contact me and I will come over.

Cheeky Boy!

At least I'm tall enough to see over the top and do all the driving (because others can't see over )

If I've got this right..., and the chronology and sequencing of the thread is correct..., The Man from Del Monte just said "Yes!" and ""

....so I am well pleased

We made a run from the North Coast around Tory Island on Sunday, 30Nm in interesting seas - and it was great! Test drive a Redbay!

Good choice, I looked at Redbay, Ribcraft and Humber they are all good sea going RIBs. I bought a Redbay 650 and think it is a great boat. No problems with it and its handling could not be bettered.

The truth

Rib fan,,

I am a big Redbay fan and am on my second boat from them. I am originally from a fishing family on the west coast. I grew up to expect a lot from my boats and have found Redbay to meet and exceed all my expectations. Note the tough environment where they originate and are widely used.

Whilst there are a lot of good boats out there I feel you will find their 6.5 the best sea boat of its size in the market. Check out my previous postings on this matter.

The big benefit of their offering include:

Ursurpassed seakeeping
Probaly the ssstrongest rib in the market
Ease of access to manafacturer
Customisability
Resale value

As previously mentioned go up to the lads for a day. Be warned you might fall in love.
