The Honwave is a SIB and not a RIB but I believe the inflatable hull has a slight V. Great as a small tender or for pottering about in sheltered water but not much else. However, it all depends on what you want to use the boat for. Whatever you buy, have fun!

Your point is valid - but I think Keith (the bracket man) Hart might disagree with you on the capabilities of a sib though.... http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=29499
