Do you mean why you should buy rib rather than a hardboat?

Or better still let her have a look at both types of boat in the 'flesh'.
I've found (and it is a generalisation (look mum I pelt it!) ) that wives and girlfriends like hard boats with some shelter and comfort.
In fact I've got my wife on my back to get something more suited to her and kids. Looked at a couple of small trailer displacement boats with in board diesels. Looking at the fuel costs of going 6 or 7 knotts everywhere for next to nothing is winning me over. Could be a searider for sale soon.

if i remember correctly they did find it, i might be wrong, you'll have to be a complete arsehole to burst at least 5 chambers and hole the hull to sink a rib
