sorry don't really know cos our preference is to install Cummins Mercruiser inboards. We have no experience with Yamaha. We are not only a rib builder but also the Mercury/Mariner and Mercruiser distributor for Poland so our package is more attractive

If you remember I shouted a hello to you an Paul L in the Itchen when you were returning from Ribex. I was driving an Osprey fast fisher which was about the same size as your Cabin rib and I was looking for a price comparion really.


How much would one be with twin 120's inboards.

Yes I do remember you waving and sorry we did not stop and chat.

I do not think that the twin Mercruiser 1.7 (120HP) is the right set up for the Parker 9 mtr Baltic cabin rib.

We have put this engine arrangement for the first time on a 750 Baltic hull, open rib ,as per photos on RIB GALLERY and this has proved to be a good marriage

I only mentioned Verados

Well what a interesting Thread ........Andre in the red Corner , Manos in the Blue , the crowd rises to the occasion and me .......well been kind of busy with lifeboat , one Micro lite down 2 killed , one overturned rib one life saved , 2 children trapped by incoming tide ... kind of puts into perspective the important things in life though does it not ?

Hey i am not a lover of Aston martins and Porches dammn ugly things but tried them never the less . Got mates with beautiful looking wives got some with right horrors ( no offence Plod )....see where i am going ? I like some designs on Ribs others i dont ( I did not like the Baltic Cabin either when i first saw it .............( sorry Andre )however it turned so many heads and recieved so many nods of approval both from Buyers and gawkers that I guess Parker have got it right and i would have got it wrong if it had been left to me to style it )

Now I wonder if I still have my dealership or shall i start importing the eastern block women ..........

I was having a chat with Rouge Wave about the verado block at the weekend. Does anyone know if the block is based on an existing auto block? I believe brunswick have built a new foundry to cast the blocks, but mr wave suggested the blocks could be derived from (inspired by?) the nissan skyline block?
Thanks
M

David, no fears your dealership is SOLID

however what do some mean by EASTERN BLOCK - what block . That used to be a phrase once refered to the Communist states. Today they don't exist we have an enlarged EC and thinking of Poland well Poland is and was located in Central Europe. It is like refering to Greece as a Western country or better still West European country probably South Eastern would be a better discription if location was required

Nissan Skyline.

The Nissan block which i had in my R34 V spec is a cracking engine however i do believe from conversations that it is Porsche derived which would not surprise me. By all accounts they are a superb engine and hoepfully i will be able to give you my own opinion soon.

I knew Matt was gonna ask this. Jasper informed me and he read it in some mag or the other. Let's hope it is a skyline block cos those babies are tough
