That means there are very few people who can honestly claim to be in a position to judge the best type of RIB - and even then the best RIB for fun days in the Solent may not be the best for cross Channel jollies or extended cruises in the NW of Scotland. Without at least having tried the leading brands you are clearly just spouting meaningless brand loyalty...
Then after all that go out and buy a Humber ....................... or maybe an XS or possibly a Tornado, or perhaps an Osprey or .....................................

Ballast

Chaps! Thanks for all your input. have now added 60kg of ballast into the front stowage. Rough water handling is now excellent and the chine walk has gone. I can actually trim it up now lol.
have a safe and fun season
