Back up engine

Are we being over cautious considering a back up engine?

We mainly use the RIB in and around Chichester Harbour/Solent/IOW. If so what engine would you recommend as a back up?

I bought a Tohatsu 3.5 last year for when we are out on our own and I have not used it once yet always been out with other ribs, but it's there if we need it

Some solent ribbers prefer to invest their money in seastart rather than six engines. This combined with the fact that the solent is rarely deserted and well served with rescue organisations means it is one area where you may have options.

We'd better not send The Black Shadow round then... all that ribbed latex might send her a bit giddy
