Not a boat for racing, far to narrow and short for the Evinrude race engine with some 260 hp

That lovely bit of driving through a wave, has far more to do with the driver(using term losely) than the boat/engine.

Doesn't look particularly narrow to me.

Just out of interest, what size of boat would you consider appropriate for a 260+hp engine?

This boat is ca 5.20 metre in length, however the history if this boat it was taken from Norway to Iceland in 2004 and was powered by Mercury 50 hp four stroke.

To my feeling this boat is far overpowered but was great playing with.

Is it really? Surely the boat goes under the water because in the second picture it is travelling at some speed nose down, and has so much momentum that it outweighs the bouyancy. A rib may have more buoyancy but I still think this is possible if you "try hard enough" - of course it might damage the tubes!

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?

Are you sure? It looks a bit bigger than that to me. In fact quite a lot bigger I reckon.

So said the owner, did not pay special attention to it.
