No idea, never looked, usually has 4 or 6 divers on board so never an issue.

I've got 5.8m Tornado (they were designed to fit in a container) she's ex RYA Eastern Support RIB. Got a 80hp Yamaha Auto-lube and she'll sit quite happily at 30knots. Got a mate who had the same one from the RYA which had a 115hp Yamaha on her...

Best boats by far!

mines just 6m overall, with only a 2m beam - i think this is why it goes so well with only a 75 on the back - its like an arrow. it is however underpowered when loaded with people. great deep vee hull easily handles and cushions wave jumping. i too spend all my time driving stood up. i have a well proportioned single console which means that the steering is as easy to use either sat down or stood up.
