[QUOTE=willfinch36;375330] Just out of intrest, how many knots do you get out of your valiant 3.80? My old rib was a Valiant 3.80 with a 25 Mercury 2 Stroke and did 26 knots!!


The most i have clocked is 28.7 on the Gps. But that was with the wind behind me, downhill, ha ha.

Not a huge difference then between then 25 and 30.

Me and my mate used to use a Fiesta 1.1 to tow the Avon 3.4 we had, never had any worries.
