I would be as I need some more power but probably a bit early for my finances to allow. Working some improvements on my Rib, which is the same as yours I think ... Humber ocean pro 6.3m? We have a 140hp Suzuki from 2004 but I think a 175 or 200 would be better. Going through some improvements over the next year, sorting out the hull, getting flexi teak, building a custom sunbathing area on the bow and then at some point looking for a new engine.

Hopefully you find a buyer for your 175 though, sounds a good machine! Perhaps post more photos of it and a video if you have one?

Anytime you are on the south coast boating give me a shout, would be great to meet up and see your new but with 200hp! An Ocean Pro cruise perhaps...

The tarty bits can wait & be done anytime. Good low hours engines are harder to find, grab em while you can.

Any offer considered... Cheers all - yeah itís coming off next week and being brought back to Chester. Will then advertise it. Shame nobody on here wants it, proper reliable engine. Other than a chafing wire a few years back, itís been faultless, and we arenít after top dollar at all!!! Bargain to be had.
