In all honesty I would choose a different photo, the rib looks like it's about to capsize!

Compare it to any other RIB out there and you get a lot more for your money!

Anyway - which one?

IMVHO the top one - just looks more professional and the colours are more appealing.

Let me know if you want to place an ad in Riblines!

Is that with seats (for 5), console, Seastar steering, anchor locker, a 2 metre long dry locker and an A frame that you can ski from and lift the boat from? I'm sure I can think of some other stuff in a minute!

I don't know, not that clued up on ribs!

All I can say is that it seems quite a lot of money to me, as one of my 24 foot sportsboats, fully rigged and including 6.2 Mercruiser on a Bravo 1 is the same price!

Not having a pop at you cookee, but I also think ribs are too expensive! Other than the additional cost of the tube, what justifies the extra expense?

Out of interest Tony, is this one of yours?

If it is it would seem tremendous value for money!
