I was asking for the pecking order of RIBS as in quality and finish, a mention was made of a load of RIBS seen at a dry stack but no mention of Avons, my post asking why no Avons was a real question e.g. are they not that popular or have they just been inadvertently missed out, not wanting to buy a new one

I will stick to British thanks, off for my Danish bacon sandwich now

Avons:
I think I'm safe in saying that although (as you know) the SR range (and the related "Workboat" big SIB range) are built like the proverbial commercial outhouse, there is deeply divided opinion on here about the "leisure" range.

Which is why I say you really need to get out there & test drive / experience differnet setups. To go back to the Avon Adventure / Humber Assault deep vs shallow V debate as a kick-off

One man's meat = other's poison & all that....

I think the Avon Adventure range seems a decent rib (although with a double console they are a bit tight to move around on - especially for those with a "fuller figure"). Not mentioning any names!!!

That or he's not interested in "real" replies, just the miffed ones.

I think he should get out on his rib more, check out some RIBflesh on the bay...

There are some CAT's being built in the UK that are adapted to give access vie the front bow with a hatch.

We are currently building a 40' version for a client in Vietnam. Will post pics when the hull is done.

I've currently got a Ring 6.5m With Suzuki 140df outboard. My first venture into ribbing. Love it, solid, stable boat with sports transom. Ring = quality and British. Boat capable of going to France and Channel Isles. Sadly may look to sell in next couple of months due to illness.
