Newbie, looking for 4.5-5m rib
Hello, we are new to the world of ribs (although we have PB2 and driven sailing club safety boats). We are after a rib to use as a safety/coach boat but also be able to take a family of 4 out for a jolly when the weather is good. We are based on the Solent so it needs to be reasonable in chop. We would like a 4 stroke engine and preferably 4.5 - 5m so its easier to tow and pop in and out, as we will usually use it 2-up. Budget up to £10k. The Ribcraft 4.8 looks good but they seem hard to come by and expensive. There are various Valiant, Humber, and XS ribs out there which apprear to meet requirements but which has the best hull shape? Hyperlon or PVC tubes? Any advice gratefully received!
