I have a 2004 Ribeye 550 with two double jockey seats and a rear bench. Agree with all the previous comments, I'm made up with mine.
I moved from a 4.2 Aluminium hulled rib and the difference is huge. The feel with the 550 is one of reassurance and confidence although it is still manageable on a trailer with two people pushing and pulling if needed.

I don't think your budget will get you a 2007 model though, but best of luck, you wont be disappointed.

I am looking for a bow cushion and the three backrests for the rear bench seat if anybody out there can help

Hi Deekus,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Ref your back rests - just had a look about and stumbled on a Ribeye eBay store that sell parts including seat backs, pads etc, hope this helps?

Click on seller other items on the link below and there's lots of different ones

Hi Jim

Thanks for the suggestion.


I have been following that seller for some time, but unfortunately they don't have the triangular shaped cushion that fits mine. I'll continue to search.


Good luck with your search for a 550. I don't regret buying mine, if you need any other info regards the boat just ask


Cheers
