I wouldn't hold your breath with this one Andre. I feel that he's shoeing Pirellis here.

You're being cut a lot of slack here, probably as English is not your first language. In short, your questions are going around in circles, you don't take onboard the answers which you are being given and you're blunt to the point of being rude.

It would appear that you've made up your mind, so go buy the thing.

Term "to cut some slack": to allow someone to do something that is not usually allowed, or to treat someone less severely than is usual

Its gonna feel the same half a mile from shore as it is 500 miles to shore. Depending on sea state. I took my 4.8 Ribcraft in a Force 8 this weekend and never did i feel compromised as did the two SR4s i was with. As long as its equipment with 200 litres fuel tanks to cope with an 80 mile offshore jaunt then for me the answer would be yes it will be fine!

I'd suggest (respectfully) that it would probably feel much nicer 500 miles from shore - or anywhere out of the effect of a shelving bottom and coastal currents.

80 miles offshore is a good way in a 6.5m RIB. MRR has not said what conditions he feels are stormy or what he defines as comfortable. In my book, I wouldn't feel comfortable in any RIB in conditions that I would describe as stormy. I understand that English is not MRR's first language and that therefore something may have been lost in translation. That said, more information would be useful regarding his plans for the XS. If he just wants a RIB capable of handling a rough passage, saying so would be helpful as it eliminates the other issues.

With a descent RIB 80 miles offshore should not be a problem at all if the crew is upto the task.

These guys went even further, 3500 nautical miles in an 11 metre RIB!

I think you have answered your own questions really anything is possible as above since your into climbing and the extreames that throws at you apply the same to the craft you will need, what are the expedition guys using, camel trophy, rescue services, month halls for instance bought a Humber, artic challenge rib magazine Humber, redbay, delta, tornado, ribcraft, ribquest all good boats all can be built to suit your needs.shock seats and pods offer a totally different ride to normal seating wrap around consoles offer shelter in bad weather the list goes on.ribquest for instance have a new hull out the super sport by all accounts very capable, lot of research need for 80 mile trips good luck with your search.

Cheers

Wind speed alone is fairly meaningless, particularly in a confined body of water such as the upper reaches of the Bristol channel. Wind speed along with direction and more importantly, distance of fetch would give a more accurate picture of sea state.
