RIBase
small ribs

I am trying to sell my Valiant Dr 490 without the engine and a few other bits and pieces. I am wondering if I should replace it with a ribcraft 4.8 or a sea rider 4.7 of a redbay 5.1. I want to keep the 60 hp etec. I use my rib for crusing, diving (4 divers) and snorkling.

I am concerned that the redbay would be too big to have the sort of preformace I require as I have only 60 hp

your thoughts please

TSM

You know the answer already. Both ribcraft 4.8 and searider 4.7 will fit with your 60 hp. Choosing between is a question of personal "gout" , not of quality, i personally would prefer the ribcraft because of her jockey driver seat, which is a little bit higher than the one in the SR,I heard.
