Thanks. It is a Ocean Pro 7M and it is my second Humber going from a 6M Destroyer. I just received it from Humber and so far I`m very impressed by it. First thing first; excellent customer service from Humber, promt delievery and a quality that so far exceeds my expectations. The new storage cover from Humber is also impressive:



The engine is a Suzuki DF250AP with a Ballistic 14 3/4" - 23 prop and since the engine is new I have yet to push it passed 50 knots (SOG). The engine is mounted on the third hole from the top and it rides with a great balance up to 46-47 knots but going faster I need to make sure the balance/weight distribution inside the boat is OK. Good acceleration and good fuel economy at cruise speed.

Good 'business like' looking RIB. I think if I had the money I'd want a big OP. I have always hankered after Paul's. What do they call that style of console?

Thank you and I agree on the business part... no toilet, no shower and no thin tupperware plastic - just a clean, well working rib and thats it The console is their standard dual cruise and it is a rather simple, bulky style console but it works. I do not think it would cost them much to change/improve the style slightly. For example, a bit more angle on the windscreen would have improved the look a lot. To compensate they should add a little lip on the top of the screen. The same goes for the stainless, why not offer anodized alu as an option. Lighter, better and yes, a bit more expensive but so much better looking. Just some small things that I believe would improve the look.
