The trevissome slip is operated by trevissome house. Googlable. I tow with a disco but don't want to live 100metres from the water and then drive 1/2 an hour to get my boat!

I know the ribeye might edge slightly closer to the pretty side versus performance but I've always found that the "I've spent all of our money dear," conversation goes a lot better when the result is somewhat pretty!

Is the general consensus that they're not much good then?

I have one and love it yes they are pretty but I like pretty and practical things, that's why I marred my wife
I recon they are a easy one to sell on to if you want to sell.

I have a ribeye 600- sea trialled a few different ribs over the years. I think it is a great boat (obviously as I chose it) . I have not tried a Ribcraft but I hear they are also great. Whatever you go for I got some good advice I found to be true -1. try it ! 2. Think about how and who uses it most, some styles from the same manufacturer ride so differently and sit at rest very differently too. What matters most - seating, stability, top speed, pretty, annual costs, tow weight etc?

I chose the ribeye on suitability for a young family, ride, trailability - max speed and some other things were not issues to me.

Will, come out to my place nr Lamanva and take a look at a couple of fine examples and we'll talk about Ribs. Bring a few bottles of Betty Stoggs with you. ;-)
