If you put a 350 on your rib codders it would probably push 80mph........

I doubt it - it's a heavy beasty - will be quite happy with 70mph - for now!!!

Having said that RIBs seem to be boring in flat calm waters - even Gordon Mcath's Revenger at 90mph looked slow - now in 10' waves they look far more impressive - even at 20kts.

Nah still boring - impressive because it's so composed - that's why it looks boring!!! I bet shots of you in the Red Sea looked far more impressive - even though the sppeds were much lower. Ribs NEED waves!!!

How fast was that anyway? What HP were you running???
