Rib 350 VS Sib 4.15

Hello everyone!!!
I m a quicksilver sport XS 4.15 owner. I use it for fishing with my boyfriend and it is really good...even if it weighs 120kg
I was thinking about to buy a new one maybe more light and performing and i was seeing the quicksilver alu rib 350
I didn't have the pleasure of seeing them from live, here no one have it and there are no information on this RIb owners ... but this ALU RIB have a really appealing price
It weighs only 70 kg and my idea would be to bring it upside down on the roof of my Citroen berlingo car. (So the 350 must necessarily be or maybe 390?)

Now letting go of the fact that it will surely be tiny, and obviously in two + fishing gear we would be super tight compared to my Quicksilver 4.15, but my question is...as navigation skills, this little rib 350, will be better at sea than my sib 415 quicksilver with the aluminum pneumatic keel ?

Any 350 Rib user or Quicksilver 350 ALU rib users that can tell me how this RIB behaves at sea?

My engine is a mercury 20cv 4stroke

thank you so much and greetings from Italy

There are +&- for each I think you will miss the room of 415 and the 350 will perform well but not as good a ride as the 425 IMO but putting it on the roof at 70 kg is a bonus and able to take it places the 415 wouldn't be possible to take. I have the Mercury 365 100 kg it's a heavy boat with all the kit in same boat as the quicksilver.

The rigid hull will perform much better. It will track and handle better as it will likely have a deeper vee and wont flex liks a larger sib will.
We switched from a 2.9m sib to a 2.8m aluminium hulled rib as tender to our cruiser and were very impressed with the improvement in performance and handling. Only slight downside is because the boat has a deeper vee and is lighter when one person sits on the tubes it does make it list more than the much flatter sib

Thanks for the quote!
.. .In the end in a shop I could see a 350 rigid hull but vtr more closer and it was really too small...is a right size for a boat tender not for what I need... Seeing also the hull, for this economy rib the hull is 15degrees...so I stopped a bit and in the end I decided to buy a Mar sea in hypalon orca 4.20 with wooden hull (Marshall project)
I see it and seems Really nice hull VS my pneumatic hull (practically don't have it)

Yes, inside he have a wood keel that make the hull more rigid, Mar sea is a marshall Engegneer Donno project renamed

The wood need much more care than a inflatable keel... but with That V must be better!
