Solent Ribs - 6.9

Hi

Has anyone got any info on these ribs, the website doesn't seem to have much info, any pictures , are they good in the rough and do they have to go on a twin axle trailer or can they go on a single one.

Many thanks

Tim Griffin here abouts uses one for his PB school. He may even try to flog you one.

I have seen it outside Fairweathers on a single axel trailer.

Ours (smaller) is happy in the rough! And performs well. A good combination of nippiness and stability in our experience. Lee is usually at the London Boatshow (often seen on Tohatsu Stand he'll be really grateful I said that ).
