Are Revengers not built for the rough stuff then, I would have thought with that paper dart profile they would be pretty good.

Paper Dart=? You may want to think again Steve
I drove an 8m+ in a swell off Portland very quick...and easy plane although Quite light and flighty..Fine and responsive close in...but that long nose off big waves wants to stuff...faster than Billy Bunter!

They're actually very good in choppy conditions, but being quite sporty they do benefit from a bit of positive throttle input. It wouldn't be my first choice for slugging through massive seas, but then I'd rather not be out in those conditions at all!

The bench seats were always a slightly at odds with the potential performance of these boats. Personally I'd prefer bucket seats but the bench works OK.

The difference between CHOP and Rough sea's is quite Large!
All depends on user and usage on what Type of RIB you choose...but often too late when you've parted with yer Hard earned!

And interpretation, one man's chop is another's lumpy and another's rough
