I am either going to get a 6m RIB with a 90HP or 6.5 with 115HP or slightly larger. I would like an engine just out of warranty so I know it has been serviced properly BUT I want something frugal with fuel equally capable of chugging around at 8 knots in Chichester Harbour as well as occasional blasts out in the Solent!
I was very impressed with the Suzuki 90HP yesterday, sooo quiet but would really like to go up a size in boat to a 6.5m. If i get a Humber 6.5 a 115HP is recommended by Humber but the fuel shoots up on one of those as it doesn't have lean burn and is a bigger engine block
They probably don't go back 4-5 years anyway.....
Any suggestions for a good reliable engine that will never really get thrashed? 125HP maybe, other wise I'll get a 90HP something and a 6M RIB!
