Redbay have given me til christmas to decide on the engine, so i've got some time to wait and see what develops (and who develops it!). Redbay don't have the KAD300 on offer for the twin test they have arranged, but a KAD44. Still it should be interesting....

It ain't over yet. Just one more thing. Redbay are recommending that should i go with the Yanmar that i should fit the bravo 2X legs as they are stronger and bravo 3x owners are known as "the broken leg club". Do you agree? Is bravo 2 a good choice?

Believe me this whole engine thing is boring me as much as it is you. Hopefully it'll all be sorted out soon. Thanks to everyone for their help.

BTW: JW, where do you do most of your boating?

I hv made enquiries at Marine Power in Belgium and hv been told that for this application for sure Bravo 2 legs are not suitable. Bravo 2 are best for heavier boats, ie; heavier application ,
Bravo 2 has a longer leg and is much lower in the water

Bravo 1 or Bravo 3 would be more suitable

Bravo 2's were designed for the "cruiser" market, and swing a much larger diameter prop. Bravo 1 is more performance orientated, a Bravo 3 sounds like the drive for you, all these mentioned are of course X's if being used with diesels.

I'm east coast based so most, day to day, boating is local, Firth of Forth, Dunbar, Isle of May, St Andrews. Nothing too taxing. Most of the time, short, bumpy and uncomfortable.
Other times it's west coast and mainly the Outer Islands.

So with our intrepid hero unable to afford ("cos he only has 3 other second hand ribs" source CH) the latest Canadian Aliminium icebreaking rib he sets to work on a major project and overhaul during the winter months of the latest addition to the fleet.

Hopefully he has a better understanding of Project Management than some others who regularly post on here (despite not actually owning a rib) and will therefore have the boat in the water by early spring.

Work in hand, engine overhaul, fuel tank replacement and the dreaded MCA coding.

Of course with the jet who cares about stern drive problems and the cat yes please.
