I bought the 9.5AL because it accepts a 15 HP Yamaha 2 Stroke and planes nicely 4 up. It will also let you take the kids water skiing.
It fits nicely on the forward deck for long passages…. in spite of claims to the contrary, the solar gantry is not man enough to take the weight of the dinghy during heavy sea conditions. (I have the dual cross braces installed and I consider these absolutely mandatory for safe dinghy carriage.)
I also installed heavy tie downs to attach the rib to the fore deck.
