How many people have experienced 10 different manufacturers of RIBS? Not enough to get an accurate opinion, that’s for sure… and yes, mine is the best…

I suppose I would put a Delta fairly high up a top ten list and a humber, well the one I had, fairly low down the scale!!

Tornados seem to be pretty good but possibly a bit too expensive. (Why don't they build a bigger well in the back of the boat for water??)

Solents, look very good value and pretty good build quality too.

Thats my two penneth!!!

Solents seem to have gained a good reputation, although for me it would have to be a Redbay!

Never tried a redbay so can't really comment. They do seem to perform well in reviews. How are they in terms of value for money??

And scorpians? Are these really value for money?? Or are they good boats that are very expensive??

Ribcrafts have got to be up there somewhere or the coasties would not buy them!

I'd prob put a Solent up in the number one spot for value for money then. Any body disagree?

Great boats, very very strong, but a very hard and wet ride.

I had one for 10 years!

I would rearrange your sentance as "they are very good boats that are expensive"

There are of course exceptions but having owned and been on a few boats over the years I would say Scorpion are #1.

Horses for courses, its just my view.
