Rib International

A quote from rib magazine, Ribex 2004 article:

'Definite favourites will include Valiant, Ribcraft, Humber, Coastline, Osprey, Revenger, Solent Ribs, Ribs Marine and two of the marine world's most highly sought after makes- Scorpion and Mark Pascoe'

Question: Do you think that this is unbiased and impartial reporting???

Vote for what...

Define "best"...
Best load carrying capacity? Best looking? Best high-speed handling? Best low-speed manoeuvrability? Best price? Best economy at high speed? Best service intervals? Best warranty? Best design? Best delivery period? Best colour scheme availability? Best residual values? Best fittings? Best build quality? Best in high seas? Best in calm waters? Best ride? Best at what I want, or best at what you want?..….. Best compromise……..

It would be good to start a poll to see what is the most sought after rib. JK whenever you've got the time!

As fair and impartial as RIB Int ever gets. Advertisers are important people after all!

Rib Int

Sure, advertisers are important but if i was a rib manufacturer such as one of those listed before the mighty Scorpion and Mark Pascoe i think i would be a little bit narked.

I do not see RIB-X on the list. I know that they will be there though.
