Ribeye sports hull

Any comments on the ribeye sports hull? Aware that it is not as deep v as some of the more "business" like ribs such as tornado, X-rib or Ribcraft, but what about its general abilities in different sea states?

This hull started it's life as the Vector Vagabond which was designed by Pete Kidd, ribeye used it for their early 625 and 725 sports models, the beam was widened out a few years ago when they moved production to South Africa.
The early ribeyes were great handling boats, the 725 had a stepped transom which took a bit of getting used to, i could'nt comment on the wider beam model as i have'nt been on one.

I believe there is already a thread on this subject if you do a search.
