heh np...only 1 person onboard and it was a dead calm day but i have never driven an optimax/etec/or hpdi engined RIB i have driven a 18 ft whaler with an optimax on it and that flies too i didnt even have enough confidence to go WOT on it because i thought it was very fast already heh. I couldnt imagine what an optimax or etec would do hangin off a RIB. ive never driven an etec or hpdi on any type of boat though

No problem with a 4.stroke on the Rib unlimited, the service cost is more expensive but so is oil and higher fuelconsumption, you will probably loose a couple of knots but 4-stroke is very reliable and quit, if you dont looking for topspeed i would go for a 4-stroke, ring Mats Lindgren på RIB Unlimited så kan han säkert komma med bra råd (translation: Give Mats Lindgren at Rib Unlimited and he will probably give you good advice)
