Went to SIBS on Sunday to test the Ribeye 600 Playtime and 650 Sport. Liked both but thought the 600 would suit me nicely - don't want huge performance, just want to have some fun, cart my parents and dog about and nip around the solent (I live on the IOW). RIB will be kept on a pontoon in the marina.
Question is, what other RIBS similar to 600 should I look at? I really liked the Yamaha engines which were very smooth and quiet and favour the seating layout of small bow sunpad, seat on front of console, 2 single jockey seats and confortable rear bench seat with a bit of space between jockeys and bench. Guy on Revenger stand told me Ribeye was unsuitable for leaving on pontoon as it is not self-draining like his RIBS are - is this an issue I should consider? I live very near to marina, well everyone on the IOW does!
He also said E-Tecs were the best thing since sliced bread, never need servicing and only have 3 moving parts so never break down!
Advice greatly appreciated oh knowledgeable ones!
