thats because they were built and rated for a max of 75 hp. In 93 a buyer wanted a Suzi 115 fitted to a Sparrowhawk. Osprey initally refused but he persisted so they eventually fitted one to a new rib. A year later he still hadn't broken it so they upped the hull rating to 115 hp. But 225? well you should have taken it for a test drive. Is it in anglesey ?


Ribnet is best viewed on a computer of some sort

I can't remember where it was when I contacted him. I'll try and find the photos he sent me as they are quite "interesting".
