Hello,

It depends really on which boat you buy. You really need to be more specific as there is such a massive difference between a 2.5m boat and a 4m boat. Best to choose the size of the boat first and speak to the manufacturer and they will tell you the max and min size engines that will fit. It also depends alot on engine weight as well. Power trim/tilt is not available on all engines again it depends on what make of engine and engine size etc etc.

This has just been relisted on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/RIB-2006-3-8m-...QQcmdZViewItem

I love the look of it. Its a lot of money for something that small though unless its in perfect condition.

Edit: what is your budget?

get the most powerful, lightest you can for the boat that it will take, then you will have loads of fun

2 stroke on them is fine as they only use a snif of fuel and provide much more excitement than a 4 stroke on such a little boat in my opinion
