Ribeye ribs... Any good ??

Having just sold my zodiac pro open 550 I am now in the market for something larger. I have looked at a Ribeye 6.2 with all the bells and whistles. Any comments good or bad would be appreciated about these ribs. Thanks.

UUUMMMM!!! Had a 7.2m for 3 years, Dartmouth Built.
Now have a 6.5 Ribcraft, already done 270 hours since end of May and very pleased.
I have to say that I would not go back to Ribeye for the type of work which I use the RIB for.

You just posted this to get some energy on the Forum didn't you.!

The most diplomatic thing I can say is whilst they are quite well designed in my heart of hearts I don't not believe they are built by craftsmen.

Theree seem to be quite a few of them coming up secondhand at the moment!
