Repowering 5m rib
Looking at Repowering a 5m rib. Most boats of this size, I've always gone for 75hp because I have used them dive boats for four divers. My question is if instead planning on using for 3 divers or 2 divers plus cox, can I get away something smaller. Main motivation is wanting to switch to more modern engine, and tohatsu 50hp at £4k looks good value, compared to 60 etec at £6k+ which would be my first choice but for the price. Anyone with experience of the proposed engine/set up I would be pleased to hear from.
