I always thought boats with one motor were like a women with one breast, still attractive, but not quite as much... no knock on the single engined guys out there, it's just that two in the hand feels better than one! Smile! It's Friday!!!

If anyone wants to know what it's like to go over 70mph in a RIB with only 200 horsepower - come to Ribex, sign up at the BIBOA stand and come for a ride in last years British Championship winning boat
