Probably a sound theory cod, however the RIB is only 5.85 long,with a 220kg engine, adding more weight on the transom is not an option. I'll see how the cav plate relates the hull, but a 4 blader is my only option I think.

With the strength of the £ versus the $ at the moment and the fact most jacks are made in the USA now is an excellent time to buy one!!!
£350 for a hydraulic one ain't bad at all......
