lol - NOS, you're showing your age. At 26, one goes as fast as one can.... which begs the next question - just how fast will that be? 150hp on a 5.3 Attaque. Sporty!

I cruise at the fastest pace I can physically stay in the boat...and I've got footstraps

On a 5.3, it'll be completely uncontrollable and unusable at more than the speeds you reach now except in absolute flat calm.It won't be a full 150hp btw, it'd be a crank rated 150 which is prob equivalent to about 130-135hp at the prop.

How very dare you sir!! hahah actually I'm not your usual speed demon, its a dive rib more than anything so speed isn't an issue for me, however a tuned engine is never going to hurt resale value for when I want, sorry NEED to upgrade!!!

Not sure! I mostly got it with poor fibreglassing, poor sanding and some standard marine paint!!! Unfortunately time is not a luxury that I have!!

Somebody used to make a small (5 gal?) polyethylene tank designed to fit an inflatable's bow area. Can't seem to find it now.

Similar to this one, but SIB-sized.

Here it is: Tempo Bow6
