How did you get on with the 4.8? I fancy one to tow behind a camper one day just as a runabout for 2 & a dog. Your 585 looks tidy, we loved ours, great boat

4.8 was spot on for it's size, easy to launch and tow. Coupled with the 50 suzuki it's a nice package, 50 was that bit lighter than the 60hp and amazing on fuel.

Manged some decent rough water in it, St Albans Head on a big day was doable. Very responsive at speed, covered 70+ miles in a day comfortably and ideal for pulling up on a beach somewhere.

Good colour scheme

Mind that light pole though, the transom might fall off

Thank you all,

Thanks at the ribmen I saw at Ribex 2010, and permitted me to make a test:

Sirmoor and his RC 6.40

The man (and his wife) with the RC 5.85 (140 Suz)

All the Ribcraft team.

Excuse my english.

A+

Paulo.
