5.8m rib wanted

Hello,
I am looking for a deep V hull preferably destroyer, ribcraft, vipermax, with a 115hp min (4 or 2 stroke). Two things are important to me, the craft has to have an internal fueltank and an under deck loom.
cheers

You can probably write off a Destroyer then as they don't generally come with an under deck trunk or underdeck fuel tank...........

Ribtec, Ribcraft or Vipermax would be the top 3.

I doing mainly spear fishing so vipermax is probably not really adapted for what I need. Ribtec, humber and ribcraft are my prefered targets.

Why?

I also spearfish and find our Vipermax perfectly suited.

From the information I got the vipermax is a little more fitted for "speed" while ribcraft is more "confortable cruiser". Second good reason Osprey is more expensive ?

regards

Not in the 5.8m length.

More than the Humber, but on a par with Ribcraft.

You get what you pay for.

Spent the best part of today repairing a Lycramax
Though I've had my share of Slumbers in the shop over the years

I'd be building my own by now if anyone could afford them
Plus I can't think of a good name for them....

Sounds familiar, was it fabricated in the Midlands?
