Ribcraft 6.5 or Zodiac 650 Pro

Looking at these for a possible Fire Department rescue boat and looking for feedback?

Leave immediatly the Zodiac and choose the Ribcraft.

For me: only the Military boats from Zodiac are worth to take a look, that's only my opinion and not to dissapoint the Zodaic owners.

Cheers
Eric

Nice to see a fellow aircraft man in the forum.

Speaking of Avon 5.4 (also a good choice), Bridger Marine Exeter, have the last 2 UK production models (straight from the factory) for sale.
