Ribs are awesome for skiing etc, more stability and all that, usually you would pull from the two towing eyes in the transon or you can tow from a high top Aframe, 5.6 is a perfect size rib for self launching and recovery, 90 hp up would be ideal,

I have a Zodiac Pro open with a Suzi 90. No problems with a mono skier. I had 4 adults and a child on board. Wake board even easier.

I had a 5.6 Avon with a F100 Yamaha. Perfect for everything really and cheap to run (compared to current boat!) Supposed to be better balanced on re-entry than the 115 which could torque the boat over at times. But the 115 was fuel injected so i expect no real difference in running costs. Wake a bit small for wakeboard but not too bad. Overall a very good combo.
