paul my valiant had a suzuki 70 4t on the back which was fine as its rated up to 80hp . I always felt a lighter 75 2 stroke may have suited it better but at the expense of much more fuel,unless you can find one with an etec
6k ish should get you a really tidy valiant about 2001-2 , they are fine for family fun use and mine had no problems at that age ,
the ribcraft or searider are certainly better quality and probably better sea boats but lots more money and the ribcrafts usually have a 50
What about the smaller humbers ?

Well we've decided to go for the 4.8m Ribcraft.

Just deciding on extras and colour then we'll place an order monday.

The setup we're going for is the double FS jockey to take 2 fuel tanks, using our new Suzuki 50 4str.

Does anybody have any recommendations on what extras to go for?
