Achilles hb-fx folding rib

Thinking about getting the 8'10 model because of its light weight and the fact it can be stowed in a small space. We carry our dinghy on the fore deck, and launch it with a halyard. We have an older ab a double hull which used to ride in davits. Davits have been replaced with a wind vane. Does anyone know first hand how these foldable ribs ride? Supposedly has only slighty shallower keel to make it pack well, but not so shallow the ride is significantly impacted. Would appreciate any first hand knowledge of these boats. Thanks
