All the best to everybody and your familys for New yr.
On with the buisness.Alan I am interested in your recomendations as far as the decisions re V drives and Jets as I am of the opinion that even though some combinations are unreliable, Outdrive/inboard are still are the most practical and efficient propulsion/economic/for there weight and size.
I am of the belief that ribs over 33 ft suffer from the deminishing returns syndrome,Big time and that aprox 33 ft is the overall size that Ribs will top out at this size and associated weights in the market place.
As this is there most efficient size for space and room and speed.
I am of the opinion that Z drives and Jets are very limited for Ribs up to that size of boat.I am aware of there specilised application benefits but I am looking at it for general use,space,economy and budget and speed.
Your thoughts and reasons will be most interesting on this subject and appreciated?
