Having made my mind up about which RIB I want, I went and tried a 22' Sportsboat/cuddy on Saturday, a Monterey 218LSC to be exact.
The RIB and the Monterey are about the same price, give or take a grand. The RIB is a 6m with a Yam 115 plus a few toys and the Monterey has an inboard 5.0Mpi V8 with 260hp. Both go well but the Monterey is a bit quicker and has a cuddy cabin.
What I want to know is, what are the pros and cons between these two types of boat particularly in terms of sea-keeping and suitability to a choppy solent?
Thanks again from a noob!
