Trust me, a 115 on the back of a 6.5m RIB is NOT a monster, no where close

More bang for your buck!

Well it's either a 90HP with a 6m or 6.5m with 115+ by the sound of it.

Anyone know of a good second hand engine dealer - there don't seem to be any with these bigger engines..

This looks a very good deal if the shaft was right....

A lot cheaper than 8-9K for a new one maybe!? Seems a bargain what do you think! If that is what you can get for 3K I will order a 6.5m tomorrow....just seems to cheap, can i really get something like this for the price???
