The boat well in sorts of conditions, and manages to deal with the Solent Chop well.
I never understand why some people continually try to bash them on the Forum. They have a great product, backed up with brilliant service. What more could you want?
I'm very happy with my Ribeye. Mine is for family days out in the Solent and it's ideal for what I want to do. I've never had a problem with it, looks nice, goes well - everybody happy!
There will always be detractors, it's the same with cars - doesn't matter what you drive, someone will have better or (as is usually the case) doesn't have better, but needs to comment.
