Anyway, you didn't say what size boat you thought would be appropriate for 260hp outboard...

May be, if it was center line length, us ribnobers are to used to seeing the hull with a set of toooobs round, then a little boat like that becomes a giant 7.5m

That's a reasonable point, but I'm interested to know why Bogi thinks that a (circa)17' boat is "far overpowered" with a 260hp Evinrude outboard when his profile states that his own 19' Seaquel is powered by a 275hp Verado. Presumably that makes the 19 footer way overpowered as well?

Kinnell!

What a well balanced and informed post, you sir, should join the hard boat brigade!..you're wasted here in Rambo-land!

This hardboat obviously has sufficient reasonably water tight bouyancy because she "pops" up again in the second set of pics. This is the advantage of a rib - unless you pop the tube - she will pop up again and keep on going. And assuming she is designed sensibly even if you do wreck the tubes the hull should remain afloat.

But plenty of people on here have "stuffed" the boat - perhaps not as spectacularly as this - but then there aren't many of us with 260 HP engines, and presumably this was travelling faster than the average rib?

I think his profile may be a touch optimistic…. Last time I saw it … the only thing “powered” by the Verado was the packing crate it was still in….

Mr Kennett

I don't often use the chinscratcher smilie on FIBnet, but I thought it was well deserved last night, you're a spoilsport!

And you shouldn't have changed the thread title away from "too wet & wild for Boatmad" I reckon it would have been more fun had it stayed.

Bogy: Chinscratcher

Codders: behave

Max power varies from one boat type to another, and as I commented before this particular boat is over powered, regarding Seaquel you will not get me to comment on that until I have personally tried the boat out, not before.

Regarding JONO´s comment it is true the boat is still with Gav waiting for stainless steel frames and seats as soon as he gets that in my freight forwarder will pick it up.

How much has your chap quoted to deliver? I couldn’t believe the price when I got a quote for Gav.. I could send it to Australia for less…..

All charges included for a 40 foot container/flatrack GBP 1.630,- pending though on I deliver it to Immingham.

This includes also freight for the MG for Jón Baldur and Ingi Björn.
