The Ribcraft 4.8 has been available in single or double jockey configuration for as long as I can remember. They've only gone and added another seat!

Certainly makes it more family friendly.

Are Ribcraft any good. I thought they were at the lower end of the spectrum ?

I agree, they're crap. I wouldn't touch one with a barge pole. Stay well away, they wouldn't suit your needs or style of boating.

Not sure who missed the sarcasm on the forum today...

BigPlumbs or Me?

BigPlumbs - you do know what Pikey owns don't you? In which case it was maybe me...

Or maybe I picked up sarcasm that wasn't meant... ...because maybe Pikey knows what kinda boating BigP does and in car terms he needs a BMW Convertible rather than a Landrover Defender...

I certainly wouldn't reject a RibCraft if they wanted to give me one as a prize... ...but then I've always liked Defenders...

anywayafter climbing out from under my rock i decided ribcraft is the way forward for me i thinks, so when i saw the 3 seat option on the 4.8m along with the 4.8m special for the boat show i reckon sounds perfect ,it was a very genuine request for more info ,then you guys suggest all is not well ..
decisions decisions maybe 5.4m may be better for me ,athough not sure i can get to that
