Thanks for the input guys - I know personal choice of RIBS is just that and very subjective, but my needs probably differ from many on the board. My RIB will sit next to a pontoon and will be used probably more for business and shopping trips all year round to Soton and Portsmuff than it will be for weekend blasts. Dull I know, but as all my many years of boating experience to date was at 6mph on the broads with a 42 foot displacement boat with 30hp on a shaft, I want a gentle learning curve!

I shall wave as all you 50 knotters whiz past me!

This is certainly not the Hyundai of Ribs as Rogue Wave suggests, but more the Aston Martin.
Ribeye = Aston Martin

Good job I don't need to impress anyone with my little boat. . . . .

if you got one of the longers barges you could reach across the solent with it and save on fuel, would then just need to walk along it, perhaps serve T half way......;-)

on the ford front below

i had a jag that was post the ford takeover, all I can say is they must have been awful before that as apparently they fixed a lot of issues with them and mine was still very dissappointing from a build and quality point of view.
