Smallest RIB

Does anyone make a 6-footer?
Single hander with limited space for stowage so the smallest possible wanted.
I built a 6-foot stitch and glue... didn't like how tender it was and legs cramp up while trying to stay centered for rowing.

Achilles make an 8 footer. It would be about 6' when deflated.

Re: Smallest RIB

AB makes an 8'6" RIB. We have the 9' variety with an aluminum bottom. It's a bit tender, but we like it. Don't know if it's small enough for your needs for your needs. Here's the AB Website, click here.
Cheers! Jan
