I prefer the more work boat type of RIB but was pleasently surprised when I went out in Bam Bams Zodiac. He let me have a blast and it was like been sat in an arm chair, very comfy and everything fell to hand.
You do get what you pay for though.

That is a very good point.
Probably we should all have asked what will you use the boat for?
