I reckon you are bonkers to get a 2 stroke in this kind of hp.
That's a good one a Ribtec 4.5 owner telling other people they are Bonkers!
For the record I am not against 4 strokes I just think Opti's and Yammi 2 strokes represent excellent value and unbeatable power
Like yourself I own several boats which include 2stroke, 4 stroke and diesel engines. From a 15 hp Honda to a 425hp CAT. Of all the boats I have driven the one that makes me feel most alive and at one with the sea is the Avon SR 4.7.
Sea Riders are not smooth boats and by design they run very light when planing. When I am driving mine I realy like the snap of the 2 stroke and the usable power band is at times close to frightening. mm Yummie.?
I gotta go.... Its a very sad day for me today as I am selling my Avon this morning and I miss it already. M
