You are very correct about the FICHTS (I gave you a greeny by the way so that we are all green
Any way the Yamaha enginearing here in Greece has been great to us. No complaints what so ever.
The 115s 2-strokes we have on the hired RIBs have been great too no problems what so ever and have very low consumption too so our clinets are happy.
The SCORPION will be used for recreational purposes rather than to charter out. Too nice boat to hire out.
My engineer told me that the 150F are very good no problems so far and he recommended (provied that they fit on the transom) to put a twin set. But as I said I'm very skeptical about the 4-strokes marine engines.
Any way will have to see.
PS It seems that Ballistics 7.8 will be our next choice for hired RIBs. What do you think about the boats? I haven't been on one yet but I'm gpoing to visit their factory in SAfrica to see for my self. Any objective info highly apreciated.
