5 engines!

Wow! 4 Johnson 275's and a v6 Yam 200 just, well just!

I guess they needed a Yam as it'll be the only reliable one out of the lot!

Thats a total of 1300 HP. If you discount Charles i don't think the sum total of HP at our meet in May will equal that, but wait, there is more.......

Truly unbeleivable!

Count them - there are EIGHT v8 (i've never even seen another v8 outboard) Envirudes on this boat. I'm lead to beleive this engine was a 2.5li v8, that totals 20li of engine.

Given that i can burn 60li / hr with my 1.8li v4 that equals over 650 li of fuel an hour - thats 10 li a minute. (OK so i'm guessing here, but it's an educated guess).

It may be Gib. When I was there last I saw photos on the wall of the local dive shop of a RIB with the same engine setup!!! The RIB was used twice on a drugs run from Morocco and it paid for itself on the first run, and was impounded by local authorities on the second run!!!

One hell of a RIB!

How do you balance the throttles with only two hands?
