I love my Rip, only I can not replace it. I wish Necky would do another run of the Rip and the Jive, best boats ever made. My Rip after 14 years is a little thin on the hull now. There is nothing that I want to replace it with, so fast, carves fast, spins. Paddled the Jive in Nepal a few years back, so fun.I remember meeting you guys out at skooks with those glass prototypes. Good times indeed.
