Best Rib?

Why mine of course.. It's not sub 9 but its all I have. I think most people will answer the same way about their own.. If you don't have that confidence then why would you own it in the first place?

yes I was kind of joking about the Ribeye, it's fine in heavy seas but there are certainly better our there.

Those Humbers moored next to you look very capable...seems a bit of a waste on the Thames.

Sorry, I thought it was you with that fast 150 hp blue rib moored on the Thames in Chelsea.

It's another Will...I forgot. Apologies!

Depends on the rigout. most hulls are good at todays standard of build, some have their advantages though. I run an osprey derived hull which is the best I've had , over 2 others..... Dry ride, fast, & splits the waves, but it depends what you want TBH. What are your running conditions?Loaded?Passengers etc?

TBH I've been quite happy in an F7 with a 5.5 as much as my latest 8.5. If the kit is right and you have confidence in your gear as you should have, size does not matter

Well most of the time i would be running with me and just one other passenger..... I just like to push things a bit so would want a RIB that was comfortable getting pushed a little.... Obviously not too far

Why would you choose to go out in a storm

I suggest that you think of something affordable and easy to tow / launch. You won't go far wrong with something like a second hand 5.5m with 75 hp and it won't get you into trouble with to much power.

No insult intended but maybe some training and common sense would be a good idea before doing things like that

He didn't say that!!!

"Ok....opinions-The RIB that handles best in rough seas (most seaworthy etc) in other words if you were out in a storm, which sub 9m RIB would you most like to be in?"

A very valid and sensible question I thought!!!

When did i ever say i was going to do it? The reason I asked is because I want a RIB thats extremely safe.... What i was trying to ask is-What RIB would u be most comfortable in if you were caught in rough conditions....

I also have no intent to insult....
but there is no need to be so offensive, especially to a 'kid'

Cheers

That's a bit harsh - keyword 'if you were out in a storm...' Anyone not been caught out in worsening conditions?
