Suggested rib

Thanks for comments on Cobra.
Yes outgrown honwave DUE to the fact the wife loves being out on the water as well as grown.up kids.
Could anyone out there suggest a similar rib with the seating arrangement like mentioned.
Don't want jockey SEATS.
Something around 6 to 7 metre in length with a decent sized lump on the back.

I have a cobra without jockey seats they are called bolster seats and I find them great, I cant really think of any other ribs apart from some Scorpion ribs that have anything similar, and you certainly wont get a scorpion for that kind of money.

you could always swop jockey seats for bolster seats, most seatting these days is manufactured somewhere and the rib manufacturers just glue and screw or bolt them on.

Might find a suitable hull and motor and be able to change to the seats some Avon adventures may have that sort of layout or rib eye

However having been on a cobra 650 with bolster helm give me a jockey any day for mild to heavy chop.............
