Depends what you like, in my case the best looking rib is a british built & purposeful design but with a certain finesse around finish and layout.

I'll let you guess which make

Depends what you mean by cool. If money's no object then the beautiful lines of a Goldfish 29' (older model) are hard to beat. For a go anywhere boat then my money's on a Zodiac CZ7. Pictures courtesy of Goldfish and Zodiac.
