RIBCRAFT USA state the transom deadrise on the 15'7" boat (4.8m) is 23 deg.

thanks Polwart.

So would that imply that the menai 4.8 with a 26 degree deadrise would be a smoother ride in rough water than the ribcraft 4.8 with 23?

you might be over simplifying it. there's more to the ride than the angle.

There's no substitute for a proper test drive.
