I guess if you try and tow Jabba the Hutt attached to a flimsy A frame it could be a problem but out of all the RIBs that you've talked about the boat would go vertical before the frame went.

I wasn't suggesting you blag rides on boats that are for sale pretending you're interested, just try and get out to experience the difference between one type of RIB to another - there can be a big difference - I'm sure any dealer selling new boats would happily take you out on a sea trial, you're spending a lot of money so you need to be pretty hard nosed about it.

Negotiate to get a fair price and pay what it's worth rather than trying to screw some poor sod out of as much as you can, I know what you raggies are like

I use a 4.8m rib with a 75HP Mariner and perfectly adequate to ski behind but not much of a wake for wakeboarding but still fun to mess around behind.

I certainly will not be screwing somebody - also not paying over the odds.
Raggies have a pretty good reputation in my book.
