Planes easily due to the warp in the hull, very stable and grips well in turns. Memory is fading now but I think the 5.85 was rated to 150hp.
As with most ribs, better with twins
Opsrey still have the moulds but because of the amount of royalties required, none are built now. Same with the Lynx and Falcon.
It's a shame because the Falcon which is a commercial build would give any Redbay a run for its money.
