A friend has the 6.1 with a twin setup on the back. Ive driven it a few times and is a very dry ride and great fun in the swell off Falmouth (where it is kept) It looks great

Zeppelin are the best French ribs and the orca hypalon tubes are very good.

You have plenty of much better ribs in UK indeed.
