This morning, I had a special treat of being able to commute into Boston from Marblehead, MA on a RIBCRAFT 190. In a drive that can easily take 45 minutes to an hour by car, my RIB ride was a stress-less 30 minutes. The only stress I encountered was trying to dodge the lobster pots as I whizzed by at 30+mph. What other 19’ open runabout can you be out in sharp 1’ seas and still be able to sip your morning coffee without spilling a drop? None I would argue, except for the 19’ RIBCRAFT 5.85/190. I’m constantly amazed by the performance of this truly amazing boat. The boat easily and confidently sliced through the one foot seas this morning – if I was to close my eyes I would have thought I was out on a flat calm day.
I can safely say that a RIB is the only way to commute. I had a fantastic ride and what’s more, not a drop of water touched the topsides or me! And yes, I was drinking my Starbucks! You can’t beat a RIB!
