We Solent owners love a Ribeye, especially with mushrooms, onion rings and a couple of sachets of English mustard. Seriously, I was chatting to a pal at the boys cricket match last week. He bought a new Ribeye with a Yam 4stroke and all the bells and whistles, said he should have done his homework and bought something else. He said " The tubes are not made of Hypalon but Hypatex" and that "the sun had turned it into a shocking mess" and also that he had been "seduced by the go-faster stripes". Quote-unquote.

Seems strange when all other RIBEYE owners on this forum have good things to say about their boats.

Are you sure you're not lying Alice?

Very satisfied Ribeye owners x 2

Well myself and a mate both have the Playtime 500 Ribeye with 80HP Yam 4-strokes. Tubes ARE HYPALON (I have the specification invoices to prove it)

We both have kids, and dogs and regularly go cruising / sking / wakeboarding with our craft laiden to the gunwales!

Apart from a good wash at the end of the day no other maintainence required.

Mine is 1 year newer but neither boats show any sign of wear & tear....tough as old boots mate.

As far as rough-sea-handling goes...Recently got caught in 8-10ft standing waves crossing the River Orwell entrance..No drama

I accept that Ribeyes arn't designed to the industrial spec of Humbers etc btu I'll take the Pepsi challenge against other 5m Ribs any day of the week.

its so funny on here you all get so worked up.

All the ribs on the market serve a obvious purpose yuley, no one denies that however the rib in question would never do 70kts.

in regards to why do scorpion owners slagging ribeye is because we all have a laugh at winding you ribeyes up its irresitable.

enjoy

Well, Pop...I think the joke is more on you as I've never seen any RIBEYE owners slating any other peoples boats on here.

If you get enjoyment from doing that so be it, but yes it does wind me up as I enjoy owning and using my RIBEYE probably as much as you enjoy your Scorpion, and pride of ownership is part of that.
