Buck for Buck, the hard boat looks better, it has more stuff, it will impress far more people at the dock. You get more Feet per dollar.

The RIB, well, that's a different story. Foot for Foot, you get a lot more capability than a hard boat, IMO. I feel waaay more confident out in a 20' RIB than I would in a 20' fishing boat. And you pay for the privilege.
Willk is clearly ill. I have a 21 foot shetland which is known for being a great boat in the sea and I have all the trimmings and yet compared to a rib she bobs around v badly in anything over a 4 foot swell. Dont get me wrong compared to most boats she is great, but compared to rib she is terrible in the rough stuff

so to finnish of what Willk was saying he should have added something like " you are raving mad to consider a fishing boat compared to a rib in rough stuff. Yes there are a few minor disadvantages, but better safe witha big grin than sorry.
