I have extensive sea miles but have never actually owned my own RIB so this would be first purchase and I need a Hull that works in ALL conditions
It'll do it but they are just not designed to do it as smoothly as say a ribcraft, but for the same power you will be going quicker in most seas, but with a harder ride . You can always slow down abit ?
I have run my 7.5 hull in most Solent conditions and its just a question of getting good on the throttle to keep it calm and make good progress.
How lumpy are you thinking ?
