if he used any more throttle he would need an unobtanuim lever and cable or it would snap off

But, the I/B boats were both 260hp giving possibly a similar power to weight ratio. Me giving the rib more welly is likely, but I still reckon that there's not much in it.
I think I'd rather be an exception than the rule.
